I am new to all this recently just upgraded some things in my HT system.
what I have:
Receiver: Sony STR-DG800
Speakers: RF-52 II, RC-52 II, my backs are cheap SP-BS22 (will eventually up grade to matching reference series)
Subwoofer: DT SC4000
TV: Sharp 70" 4k upscaling Q+ 3D TV
PS3 (soon to be ps4)
Samsung BD-F7500 3D 4k Upscaling Blueray player
I have been thinking about upgrading my receiver. Reason being I feel like the sony isn't pushing enough for the RF series speakers. When I switch to stereo mode just pushing the fronts I can hear a difference in power. I hope I am not under powering the new klipsch front towers and center. I was looking at the Yamaha 2030 adventage. I just want something that will adequately run my system and leave me open to upgrade in the future. I feel like woofers could use more power in the towers with these speakers being so bright. what should I do? Keep my current receiver? Or could I be pushing these speakers to give me a fuller sound? Yes, I have adjusted the EQ and calibrated the speakers.
Any advice would be great, thank you.
Or better even yet.
Either of these deserve a serious look also.
As for a Yamaha the one below is an excellent deal.
