    I could snag a nice deal on a pair of RTi8s and a CSi5 for about $450. Some have mentioned to me that the Denon 1613 isn't powerful enough to drive those as well as surrounds for a 5.1 system. Would I need to upgrade to a more powerful receiver in order drive these effectively? Thanks!

     Hello,   I am wanting to move away from my Onkyo TX-SR705 receiver as I am lately getting some annoying chirps out of it here and there that will continue until i turn the receiver off and then back on.  It is about 4 or 5 years since I got it so I really just want to get a replacement for...

    I currently have the Jamo s426 5.0 system in a 12'x13' room. This is combined with a BIC F12 sub and it is all driven by a Denon 1913. Used mostly for movies. I have the opportunity to pick up some Polk RTi8's for $150/each. Would the Polk's (as the fronts) give me a significant improvement...

    Hi, I'm a new member and looking for advice to finalize my decision on a new AVR. I currently have a somewhat dated HK 230, which is a 50 wpc 6.1 receiver. I have no real complaints about it, except that it is somewhat technically outdated and it is time for a refresh. I recently upgraded my...

     If you had less than $400 to spend on just one set of floor standing speakers, no sub, what would you buy.  They will be plugged into a Marantz NR 1501 receiver.  I will be using it to watch movies (so understanding dialog is important), and listening to music (streaming mp3's).  I just want 1...

    Looking for some fun speakers. Listen to lots' of 60's rock, 80s, pop and a small amount of R&B. 75% will be HT/Gaming but I care about music too. Don't care for jazz or classical if that helps. Trying to avoid a lifeless dull speaker. Something where it isn't muddy or with a recessed treble...
