I currently have Aperion audio 6T's, and 5C/4B center/rears powered by a Onkyo 507.


I'm looking for a receiver that allows me to set a different crossovers point for each set of speakers. The goal would be to crossover the bass on the 6T's at a different point than the rest of the setup.


Very long story but the 6T's are beyond bad ass, and go too deep for my apartment complex.


I would love to get a receiver with a bit more power as well (for the future).


What would you recommend at a price range below $450?


the obvious choice would be a Onkyo 607 - but I'm wondering if there were any alternatives that offer more bang for buck.


Thank you.

They are all 7.1 receivers. Are there any 5.1 receivers that deliver? A higher power rating than the 507 would be great. Thanks.

Does the Yamaha - RX-V863BL support independent crossover settings?

How would it compare vs the 765? they are both the same price..

Yamaha 765, Denon 1910, Pioneer 91


Which of the 3 would have the most power? my speakers have low sensitivity.


I called Electronics Expo and they said the Yamaha 765 does not have the abilty to set individual crossovers and this only matters for the sub. I do not have a sub so the fronts will run in FULL on every receiver.


Help?!

The Denon 1610/590 allows you to set a global crossover or for each individual channel. It also has a better Audyssey implementation (MultEQ vs 2EQ) than the Onkyo 507.

You could always google them to find out.


BTW, as much as I understand your desire to spend as little as possible, you have some speakers costing $1200 or so, are nominally rated as 6ohms with a 91db sensitivity rating and you will be running them fullrange.........you may want to look at some AVRs with more nuts then entry level offerings.

The 1910 has the highest power consumption so it'll likely have the highest power output. The Non-Elite Pioneer line and Yamaha budget line aren't doing well on the test bench as of 2009. If you don't need 7.1 or video upscaling, the Denon 1610/590 will do what you need. I used one to power Aperion 4 series speakers in a 20x15 room with 9 foot ceilings and it didn't flinch.

If there's no sub, then the 6T's are set to LARGE and won't have a crossover. The LFE will be directed to them as well as the lower frequencies of the center and surrounds. Why wouldn't a global crossover work for you?
