I'm new to the forum and the Polk world. I currently own 10 years old Kenwood home theater system that sounds like *(&$/. I think I'm ready to upgrade now. What I want to do is buy a set of front speakers and a receiver first, and buy the center, surrounds and sub later.
I went to listen to the RTiA7s three times in the last two months... and I have to say I'm IN LOVE with them. In fact I dream about them every night... So from what I saw on this forum, they seem to be great speakers. I saw only one person who disagreed... (a guy from Israel I think). I compared them to Klipsch RF82s, various Energy models, and everytime I prefered the RTiA7s.
So I am wondering which receiver I should buy. I was thinking about the Yamaha HTR-6180 and I want to have your opinion on this. Is it powerful/good enough to drive the RTiA7s? Of course I would buy the HTR-6160 because it has all the features I'm looking for and it's a lot cheaper, but I doubt it would be enough for the speakers... what do you think?
Thanks for your help guys,
