    You'll be fine since your sub is taking most the heavy lifting off your fronts. If I were you, I'd look into upgrading that center channel, thats your weak link at the moment.

    I run an Onkyo DTR 9.1 and it makes my LS70 (F/C/R) and FX300i's sound great. My LSi7's sound pretty darn good on it, but the LSiC I had wasn't cutting it with the receiver. I ended up selling it to get another pair of LS70's to do a fully matching front stage. This was a $3200 receiver and still couldn't quite get the LSi's to their full potential.

    This is the problem with buying what is the cheapest or what's on sale. Preamp outputs cost money and unless you buy used, you are not going to get a reciever that has them for a couple hundred bucks.

    If you are going to spend big change on speakers like the LSI's, you have to be willing to also spend even more money to get what they need to operate to their full potential.

    That's the truth. I'm down to 2 LSi15s in the rear, and a LSiW sub. If I upgrade my two channel speakers again then I won't be using the LSi15s. I need to get a bigger house so I can build more stereos with the unused gear.

    That's pretty much what I did. Moved to a 1600 sq ft house at first so I sold almost all my gear. 18 months later we tripled in size so I can start buying and building again!
