Hello Audiophiles, this is my first post to the forum.
I have a Yamaha CR-640 Natural sound reciever and a pair of Polk 5Jrs. I can't tell if they're plus or regular. They have passive bass speakers that are the same size as the drivers. Anyways, I paid $60 for them and I got the amp for free.
They are exceptionally detailed compared to my previous sony 3-way speakers. I can honestly say I am impressed. I actually gave my sony speakers away to a friend.
Here are my questions:
1. The Yamaha is from 1980, 40-Watts per speaker RMS. To anyone familiar with this amp, is that class A watts? Is this considered a good quality reciever? Can anyone provide me with information?
2. The polk speakers were not treated well, but all speakers are fine. No rips or damage. Someone pushed their finger against the middle of the midrange speaker and I very carefully popped it back out. No noticable sound difference. One tweeter (SL2000 I believe) has its right side glue holding down the metal leading to the speaker ripped off but the wire is still present. I cannot hear a difference between either speaker. I paid $60. Was this a good price?
3. What should I do next to improve the sound of my system? I am on a college budget but I am falling in love with good sound. Any recommendations? Sub recommendations or better amp for a low price?
Thank you for any help, I am new at this but I learn quick. P.S. I am using generic monster cable.
