Need help, most important receiver feature
I have a room that’s just about 3k cu. ft. Speakers I am running are Emotiva B1/C1 up front, JBL in the rear, and dual 12” SVS subs.
What is the most important feature I should look for? Power (watts/channel) or something else? I just picked up an Onkyo TX-NR676 but I feel that it has to be turned up pretty loud for listening levels (around 60, which is more than half the total volume), so I’m not sure if I just don’t have it set up correctly that it sounds so quiet? It is rated at 100 watts/channel.
I chewed up a good amount of my budget on my speakers/subs, so I would prefer to keep the receiver around the $400 price point (not sure if that is possible). I have received so much help when it came to doing my speakers, so I appreciate all the help I can get around this. As always, thanks.
