have been reading all the entries and trying to garner as much info as possible before making my purchase. Long story short - recently returned a Samsung HT system and am now wanting to use a receiver instead with my old stereo speakers (for now until I have money to upgrade).
I currently use stereo speakers from an old Sony RX100AV system (front and centre are 8ohm rated by rear is rated 16ohm) and am wondering if:
a) Marantz will actually work with these speakers (16ohm?)
b) How bad or good the sound will be (due to power issues of 50W or less per speaker/channel) - My living room is about 16x16ft
c) If this is a good system to permit 3D images and Blu-Ray type audio since I have a 3D HD TV and 3D Blu-Ray player
d) Is there another comparable receiver that's cheaper that can do the same?
Can anyone help this newbie? I'm not sure I trust the shop as they seem more intent on selling the device rather than sharing actual info on what is needed or works with my current system.
I am not an audiophile per se, but I do like warm sounds and prefer the "analog" type sounds to "digitized" sounds if that makes sense.
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
