Recommendation

Would a 105 watt receiver have enough power for a room 16' x 20' , sloped ceiling that goes from 8 to 11 feet high? Room has no treatments.I use mainly for, streaming70%,Blu-Rays20% and Music,10%. Running modded infinity primus towers and infinity surrounds.Was looking at Denon Avr x4500h and Denon Avr x3600h. Both units have way more options than I need but I like Audessey room correction.I currently own a TX NR Onkyo 818 which has 135 watts per channel but I am upgrading my TV to a 4K model which the 818 does not support 4K pass through. Upgrade one and always have to upgrade another ;0). Any input would be appreciated.
P.S.,runing 7to 1 setup.

105W, that sounds like a Denon receiver. Determining factors would be how loud you like to listen, how efficient your speakers are and room size (how much space you're trying to fill). One way around the 4K pass-thru issue would be to connect the DVD/BD/4K player directly to the TV instead of going through the receiver. Your other HDMI sources can connect the same way.

Wattage shouldn’t be a determining factor when picking receivers as the difference between a 75 watt one and 150 watt one is 3dB.

Look for features. If your system is not getting loud enough or sounding how you wish it to, then you need to change your speakers.

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

Usually the 75w AVR would have a crap powersupply compared to the 150w one unless they are fudging the numbers a lot. There are exceptions but assume comparable brands.

I was just trying to cover the widest range of receivers, as generally the differences between them all are minimal.

He was looking in the right direction anyways, Denon X series, but I see what you are saying.

The denon x series is a good direction to look yes, good features and room correction, powersupply and amp sections are decent.

That is the reason I posted my question.I read someones review,it may have been on Crutchfield, that the receiver volume had to be turned up quite high compared to the one that he replaced,both being equal wattage.

You cannot make comparisons of "power" based on the number the master volume is set at.
