    Would a Harmon Kardon AVR230 work well with 4 cbm-170s and 1 cmt-340c? It's 50wpc at 8ohms. It doesn't say what it's rated at for 4 ohms, which the ascend accoustics use. Or if it will even run at 4 ohms. Is $499 a good price for it? Is $599 an even better price for the dpr1001?

    Either HK would work well.

    The Ascend speakers are 4 ohm nominal....8 ohms average. So you will have no problems at all with either receiver.

    Where can you get that DPR1001 for $599?

    Good price for that dpr1001? I found it at soundcity. I haven't posted 15 times yet, so I won't let me post a link.

    If they are an authorized dealer....that is a great price!

    Wow! That's a great price. Like Curtis said, make sure they are an authorized dealer to avoid warrantee issue headaches [​IMG]

    I just checked. They are an factory authorized dealer. Everything they sell comes w/ the full manufacturer's warranty.

    GREAT!!!

    I'm using my HK525 as a pre/pro right now. Slimming down to a DPR1001 sounds like an enticing idea!
