Hi all,

I would like to buy the Paradigm Monitor SE 5.1 system to my Home Theater and I wonder what receiver would be a good fit.
I've read very good reviews about Denon AVR-X3500H. Is it good for these speakers?

Thank you guys/girls.

Best regards

@vinisol those are nice speakers and will sound fine with just about any receiver. However there are a few ?? first for others to help point you in the right direction.

1. Once you get the bug, how many channels are you going to expand to in the future? (7, 9 or 11)
2. Do you plan to get a second sub?
3. Is this a mix of HT and 2 channel? (50/50, 75/25)
4. budget?
5. any special features you need (atmos, auro-3d, earc)
6. Do you have a favorite wireless ecosystem (heos, musiccast, etc.)

Hi @eriksells916,

Thank you for your reply.

It will be a 5.1 system and only for Home Theater purpose.

Dolby Atmos would be great to have. No need of ARC.

I will have a stereo system for music purpose.

@vinisol I did not see a budget and because price talk is frowned upon here, I will give you some avr ideas around the x3500h price. Since an x3500h might be overkill for a simple 5.1 living room setup, below are some ideas that have all of the newest features, atmos, etc. but are less than the x3500h.

similar

Yamaha rx-a870/880/1070/1080
Marantz - sr5012 (x3500h cousin) + 6012/6013 (x3500h 9 channel cousin)
Denon - x4400/4500 (x3500h bigger brother)
Onkyo - tx-rz730/830/740/840
Pioneer vsx-lx503/504



Less $$

Denon - s740, x1400/1500, x2400/2500, x3400
Yamaha - v685, a670/770/780 and costco tsr-7850
Onkyo - nr777/686/787and rz630
Pioneer - vsx-lx103/303
Sony - str-dn1080

hope that helps!

You're allowed to mention how much you're willing to spend. How else can people help if you don't have a budget? :)
