    Is Yamaha RX-V681 powerful enough?

    I agree totally in using the 8ohm setting. Any decent SS amp should not have any issue driving 6ohm speakers, hence why I don't think there will be an issue hooking up your 3 Emits. It may of course become a different matter if you were wanting to run 7, but being as Yamaha have this (unusual)...

    Is Yamaha RX-V681 powerful enough?

    I was just taking a look at the 681 owners manual. Similar to some valve amplifiers (that have additional taps for different impedence speakers), the 681 has an adjustment for use with 6 ohm speakers (p23). You are probably aware, the Emits are 6 ohm speakers. Have you changed or tried changing...

    Is Yamaha RX-V681 powerful enough?

    Yes indeed. In my years with HiFi I have accumulated a range of interconnect cables and I tweak mine by swapping the interconnects between receiver and power amps. It doesn't work for vastly different speakers of course. I couldn't do that with the Marantz revceiver, it didn't have pre-outs and...

    Is Yamaha RX-V681 powerful enough?

    It is so difficult to say anything for sure, but, in my opinion, the Yamaha is designed for 7 channels of which only three will be used. 90w into 2 channels (8 ohm) is not an insignificant amount, probably around 70wpc into 3. Undoubtedly, a higher volume and greater effect will be achievable...

    Is Yamaha RX-V681 powerful enough?

    Sounds like you want two systems - a tube amp for audio and a Yamaha 681 for HT, but use the same speakers? My mains are 45 year old Yamahas. Like your Klipsch, there are no modern Yamaha centre speakers that could be considered a match for NS1000Ms. Initially I used a Klipsch RP440C centre, I...

    Is Yamaha RX-V681 powerful enough?

    Why not consider something like a Klipsch RP440C / RP450C / RP404C / RP504C / RC64C centre speaker. Subject to table dimesions, one of those would surely fit on the stand underneath the tv. Should be a good match for the Fortes and being another efficient Klipsch design would mean quite an easy...
