I?m new to the Polk forum (though not new to Polk) - I?m a big fan from the small RM series right on up to the top.
I have a question regarding a new setup I am in the middle of getting ?
L/R Polk RTiA9?s - purchased
Center: CSiA6 - scouting
Surrounds: FXiA4 - scouting
Sub: PSW404 (legacy from an RM setup)
AVR: Denon 3312CI ? scouting, but undecided vs Marantz SR6006
The room is approximately 18x16, so my questions are this ?
Is an external amp absolutely essential to drive these speakers - Does the Denon have enough juice (discrete 110WPC) without one?
Is there any justification in choosing the Marantz over the Denon (considering they are basically the same company now)
For surrounds, will the FXiA4?s be enough for the room?
Is the sub too antiquated for these components?
Any advice would be welcome ? I still have plenty of time to pull some triggers.
