Greeetings everyone, Scenario: Very shortly, I would be the proud owner of (my first) a home theater system. I wish to use any one of the following amps with a set of Bose speakers. But I am doubtful about the safety of the speakers. I am not very sure of their 'load-handling' capability. Can they handle these amps, or will the amps blow 'em away? Products in question: Amps/Receivers: 1) Yamaha RXV 640 2) Yamaha RXV 1400 3) Onkyo TX-SR 602 Speakers set: 1) Bose 301 Series V - 2 front speakers (150 Watts/channel; 4-8 ohm) 2) Bose 201 Series - 4 rear speakers (10-120 Watts/channel; 8 ohm) 3) Bose VCS-10 - Center channel (10-100 Watts/channel; 4-8 ohm) Queries: 1) Which amp would be the ideal choice for this set of speakers? (Please restrict your answers to Yamaha, Onkyo, and JBL only) 2) Which is a better amp among Yamaha RXV 640, Yamaha RXV 1400, and Onkyo TX-SR 602, with respect to power handling, wattage (peak and continuous) ? 3) Is it better to choose an all-in-one offering like Bose Acoustimass 16 Surround Sound Powered Speakers (sub-woofer included) OR to go in for individual components ("jewel cubes" from Bose, but amps and sub-woofers from different manufacturers)? 4) In case of component speakers, which sub-woofer should I choose? Is it capable of handling 300 RMS, without any risk? (Again, please restrict your answers to Yamaha, Onkyo, and JBL only) Your opinion/help will be truly appreciated. Thanks.
