I just bought the 3005s from CC for what I think is a steal, and I was hoping someone would give me advice on which receiver to buy for it. I think my spending sweetspot is around 400, and what I was looking for was something that can meet the needs of the speakers and have some good bells and whistles. I've been told to stay away from the Sonys even though they rate themselves at 120W. Does anyone have any advice over what to buy?


Thanks in advance

The Yamaha RX-V663 has all the bells and whistles and would work well with that. They won't require to much power because the sub will be producing the low end.

just another question. this might seem stupid but i am a noob. the total output of this device is 665W. since i am using only a 5.1 speaker, does this mean i would get about 133w of power per speaker? just trying to understand how it works

Hi There,


Go grab it for 669 (If you get one..) I have these - Jewels of Speakers I would say.


I got a set in open box from CC also.. I love these.


Cheers!

Yamaha RX463 would do a fine job also (if you are going to be confined to 5.1) and not expanding to 7.1


I am amply satisfied with the Yamaha 463 + KEF 3005 set.

Damn!! The CC site link I posted below with $699 KEF 3005s is dead now. Wonder if I'll ever find them for that price anywhere else
