    Default New RTI speakers

    After replacing my Onkyo 608 with a Less Powerful Harman Kardon, I have much better speakers.
    The H-K made my RTI 4's much more dynamic, powerful sounding, cleaned up the sound, good for both music and movies. Movies are more dynamic and the dialogue is crystal clear. The sound of the H-K compared to the nicely built Onkyo, which I've never had a problem with, the sound difference is night and day in my system.
    The H-K does not have all the bells and whistles that the Onkyo has but the sound is so much better.

    Most times good basic clean power is far better than bells and whistles. Hard to beat HK.

    Onkyo has always been overrated from my experience and the H-K has been underrated.
    Does your H-K receiver run cooler than your Onkyo did?

    My Onkyo never ran too hot, it is a fine AVR but it does not have the dynamic sound of my H-K.
    Everything is sooo much better through the H-K.
