Hi guys, I'm about to pull the trigger tomorrow on a pair of Mirage Omnipolar 260 towers and the matching center channel to replace my Infinity Reference 2000.6 towers and Video 1 center channel (The 2000.6 towers will be moved to the side for side surrounds, the RS4's to the rear for rear surrounds and the 2000.3 Bookshelfs and Video 1 will sit on a shelf until someone buys them), the issue is I've been doing some research the everything says these speakers continous power is 200 watts and maximum power is 200 watts. I've hooked up my Denon AVR 2805 to a Pioneer SX-303R stereo receiver through the front left and right pre-outs it's only 100 watts per channel, also my Denon is only 100 watts per channel. Will I ruin these speakers? SHould I not buy them as I don't have enough power. On another note, I bought the Pioneer today on a whim for $20, put the volume at 12 o clock and plugged it into the Reference 2000.6 towers and although it has the same power rating as the Denon I swear to you it sounds better, more full so to speak. Also, it seems like the rest of my system has a bit more oomph. Anyways I'd love to have some input guys I'd hate to pay the $300 for the 3 speakers and ruin them or not be able to use them, if that's the case the money is going towards a matching CC-3 Center channel and a Klipsch KSW-12.
