Hi everyone, I have the following set up:


2x POLK 70s (Front)

1x CS2 (Center)

2x POLK 30s (rear)


As black friday deals approach I keep hearing prices on the Pioneer VSX-820-K are going to look very good but I'm unsure if this receiver is good enough to power up the given monitors. I will mostly use this set up to listen to music and of course watch TV/Movies not so much gaming (Average user here).


Should I just hold up and maybe try to get a better deal on the higher models or go for the buy ?


Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you in advance

What's your budget for this AVR?

Thinking of spending $200 - $300 but again the only reason why I'm thinking of buying the VSX-820-K is because of the drop in price this friday, otherwise I was thinking of going for the 1120 or 1020 even though I have to wait till I save up that much money (which I don't mind).


I'm a total n00b when it comes to receivers but if I can get almost the same quality of sound from the 820 (which has all the features I need) with the monitors listed without spending that extra cash for higher end models then I'm a happy camper.


I guess what I'm trying to say is that I don't mind waiting/saving up if my polk monitors will perform/sound better on higher end models like the 1120 or 1020.


Thank you!

Thank you!

wouldn't Onkyo SR608 be a better choice against the 1020?

I'd recommend waiting for the 1120. It's a lot more "future proof," and worth much more than its current $500 price tag...

Agreed. At least get something that allows you to add an amp in case you need one in the future. Look for something with pre-outs, you'll be happier in the long run instead of "just" settling for something now.
