I would really appreciate some advice on a little problem I have :)
I am a stereo-man, always have and always will (thanks Dad! :)). My current setup is a set of JBL ES90 speakers powered by Harman Kardon HK 3490. For my needs this is a perfect setup, however... I have an opportunity (by opportunity I meant my kinds and their bloody PSP or whatever they have) to create a 5.1 setup. Ideally I'd like to keep my JBLs as front/left and buy additional ES speakers as centre and satellites. I am not worried about the speakers, or the space. My concern is the avr. Some time ago I wanted to buy HK AVR165 but I sort of missed the opportunity. I can see that it is no longer available... Now the main question: do you think that this new AVR 171 from Harman will have enough power for the JBLs ES series?? It has 2 HDMI outputs which is a real convenience.,,
Thanks for your advice! Let me know what you think!
