I am dumping my Onkyo TX-SR601. The Onkyo will not drive my 2 pair of Infinity RS-3b speakers so I'm looking for something with a huge power supply. Also it must have HDMI. I'm budgeting that is hoping to spend less than 2k.

Hi Wall. I'm going to move your post to the "Receivers" fourm where you may find better advice on current, 2K receivers.

I had the same problem with an Onkyo receiver years ago. I had some Klipsch KG4 speakers and the Onkyo had issues runing them. I the problem was the speakers were 4 or 6 ohm. I cant remember the exact number. Anyway I got a Yamaha RV receiver which could handle down to 4 ohm speakers at the time and the problem was solved. Is it an issue with low db or low ohm speakers?

Does your receiver have pre-amp outputs? If so I'd get a used amp on ebay. Like an old Caver,Adcom, Nad etc. A seperate amp will be best.

Also, on the current Yamahas I'm not sure if they still say they can power speakers with 4 ohms, but I'd look in to the higher end RX-VXX receivers. It worked for me.

I my self am waiting on the new receivers to be released.
