Can't wait to join the club!!!
I am looking at these 2 speakers for my first set of polk speakers! I am actually looking at 2 sets, one for 2 channel music and some movie watching that will be driven by a older Sony 110 wpc receiver (Non ES). The other set will be used for 2 channel music and as the front pair in a 7.1 setup driven by a Yamaha RX-V2400.
The home theater setup has a sub and the sony system does not. I am wanting clean sound without a over bearing high end.
I might even consider some monitor 70's if someone can talk me in to them :D
Will the Sony be enough to drive the 500's? or the A5's?
The room is roughly 12 x 18 with the speakers on the short wall. I think the Yamaha should be able to drive most anything I throw at it short of maybe the A9's or something of that caliber... The Yamaha is driving my home theater system in my basement, about the worst acoustics possible, but I will be moving in a year or so and will be building a dedicated home theater room, so keep that in mind.
I have dug all around the site, but I am just not sure for my situation what will be the best fit.
Any and ALL opinions welcome!
