I already have the receiver so Im curious if you brainy folks think its got enough *real* juice per channel to drive the following I'm considering buying:


1 x Polk Audio CS2 Series II Center Channel

2 x Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II

1 x Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 (granted its an amped sub but here for completeness)


I already have:


2 x Yamaha NS-333

1 x Yamaha YST-216W


I like to listen to my tunez at a decent volume and so far driving the two yamaha's it sounds surprisingly good along with corner of the room placement of the sub and it at about 75% power.


But I'd like a little more *PUNCH* from woofers than the NS-33 can put out at moderate volume. Also the NS-333 seem to be a little hollow in the mids in general (2 Way spkrs I guess) and low on the highs until the volume is cranked up a bit.


So what Id like to consider doing is moving the NS-333 to the rear for HT and use the Polk for my front mains for music along with the two subs in adjacent corners of the room.


THoughts?

The PS10 is going to do NOTHING for your system with M70's...


Otherwise, there won't be any issues.

Also do you think there will be any major issue when running 5.1 mixing the yamaha's into the rear channel (timbre, voice etc) ? I already have them so Id rather just keep them for some use and in the rear channel I figure it wouldnt be as significant in timbre and vocals as the fronts and center (Polk)

Correct, it's not as significant to have mismatched rears. If you're critically listening to multichannel music you MIGHT notice a difference but it's doubtful.

There is nothing wrong with your present Yamaha for rear duty. If one day you decide they aren't enough, replace them. The Polk Monitor is so cheap right now, lots of people are buying them. They will probably be plentiful on the used market for years.


And yes, the PS10 is a waste of time. Before spending $100 on it, peruse Ebay and Audiogon...for that matter, Craigslist for a subwoofer near you in the $150 and under range.

Any suggestions on a "good" sub that mill match the M70's that I can get either *new* or used for under $250 ? Ill return the $99 Yamaha Sub and put it toward a proper sub

BIC V1020/1220/F12, Lava LSP10 or browse your local Craigslist. Apparently there is a "discount" if you ask for one from Lava is you contact them via here???


There is a Lava thread.


Beyond BIC and Lava, there is nothing else under $250...
