Hey all, I just "inherited" a rather old Kenwood kra4010 receiver. To put it simply, I know nothing about matching speakers with receivers / enough power.


So my question, how do I know if I need a pre-amp? Which one to get even? My budget is that of a lowly graduate student, so the more bang for the buck the better. Have any reccomendations for speakers? (and pre-amps if I need one?). I'd like to get a pair of free-standing speakers. Thanks all!

Radio tuner + pre-amp + power amplifier = receiver (you've already got a pre-amp built into your receiver).


As for speakers, grab a couple of your favourite CDs and go down to the local store and listen to as many speakers as you can that are within your budget. Pick the ones that sound best to you. Remember, we're not going to be the ones living with those speakers, you are. So the choice of speakers should be based around your personal preferences.
