Okay, so the other day I was down in the basement and noticed an old Marantz receiver sitting in the corner. Turns out, my brother got it from our old hockey coach a few years back. Anyways, I usually hang out around the car audio section of the polk forum, but would like to get into some home audio. I was watching Matrix Revolutions the other day on my Pioneer HT-in-a-box, which sounds pretty good...but I need more. Sure, I still live with my parents, and they don't like loud music, movies, etc. But I'm sure Polk could pursuade them otherwise :D . Well, to get straight to the point :) ...would the Polk R50 floorstanding speakers be a good match for this receiver, and a good starting point? I'm a college student, so I don't have very much money to spend, and for now would like just a basic system that sounds better than my Pioneer setup.
Another thing, what are some opinions on this Marantz receiver? The specs sheet showed 130Wrms X 2 , which sounds pretty good...but I'm not sure what some of the other specs mean. Here's a link to the specs sheet I found.
Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
