Hi,


I am a newbie in this area. Can someone give me some advice for the following setup that I want to purchase?


TX-NR509 - 80 Watts per Channel at 8 Ohms

JBL CS6100GB - Maximum Recommended Amplifier Power: 100 Watts


1. Will this system work?

2. Does it worth to pay an extra $160 for TX-NR609 which has 100 watts output?

3. any recommendation?


In addition, does either system comes with speaker wire for connection?


Thank you for your help!

(2) I would think so. It's a better receiver. With the 609 you step up to the first in Onkyo's mid-level line of receivers. It has a better amp section. Notice how the 509 is rated at a higher distortion level 80 watts at .7 vs 100 watts at .08 with the 609. The Audyssey MultiEQ room correction software in the 609 is significantly better than the 2EQ version in the 509.

It's not so black and white.


First off, that 509 will NOT put out 80 watts/channel if your driving 5 speakers. They are not discrete amps, it's one with 5 chips splitting up power. If you drive two channels, you'll probably get 80 watts. With 5, probably 50ish. That's a bare bones AVR.


Get something with discrete amplifiers that can actually come close to a claim of X amount of watts/channel.


And wattage of speakers isn't what you want to know. Sensitivity is. If they have 90+dB of sensitivity rating, they won't need much power.

is THX certified an important factor? is there big difference in sound quality for THX?


Thanks
