    Hi everybody!
    This is my first post, I'm a 21 y.o. from italy and I'm building my first Home Theater.

    I purchased from a local store a Yamaha rx-v 457 receiver in bundle with a yamaha ns-p116 (6.1) speaker system.

    I feel that the receiver needs at least two bigger front speaker, because the ns-p 116 has 6 really small satellite...

    I would like to know what do you think of this receiver and what speakers you would suggest! Obviously this is a low budget entry level system...

    Thank you!

    Daniele

    Well, i've found two sony speakers that were connected to a small stereo system in my parents room, and plugged them to the yamaha. Now the whole system sounds way better and I can use them with the "B set" feature.

    I would like to post a picture but I don't have 15 messages, so if you want go and see it here:

    Hi Daniele,

    Sorry no one responded – I guess everyone was hung over on January 1st! [​IMG]

    Here’s your picture:

    I can see why those Sonny speakers sound way better! Those Yamaha’s are some of the dinkiest things I’ve ever seen!

    You should be happy with the Yamaha – typically a well-made product, typically much more user-friendly than most HT receivers.

    Still, the speakers are your weak link, you might want o upgrade them as soon as you can get some money together. And the sub, too – if your parents won’t run you out of the house. When you get ready to buy open a thread on our
    Speakers and Subwoofers Forum and I’m sure you’ll get plenty or recommendations.

    Regards,
    Wayne A. Pflughaupt

    Thanks,
    Daniele
