    Does this receiver have enough power to drive either one of these speakers to there potential? Would either of these be a great combo with this receiver?

    IL10

    sensitivity 88db

    2 way, 6.5" woofer

    1" CMMD dome tweeter

    Max 150 rms

    55-20khz response

    S38

    sensitivity 89db

    3 way, 8" woofer

    1" Titanium dome tweeter

    4" midrange

    Max 175 rms

    45-20khz response

    Your receiver supplys 75wpc which is plenty for high volumes and no distortion with these speakers. I don't think you'll be dissapointed with either choice though my vote goes for the JBLs.

    The Infinitys sound very clean for their size, but I prefer the jumbo sized Studio 38s. Even though the S38 is a 3 way, the sound is very smooth and balanced. Not to mention an 8" woofer to add some punch.

    Chris is right on. Go with the 520+S38 combo and you won't be disappointed.
