    hi there folks,

    looking for speakers to match a Yamaha RX430 receiver 65x5 rms per channel.

    Have read that the receiver sound is bright, what speakers should i look for, brand names that match this particular receiver.

    Considering B&W, Missions, or Wharfedale. This is from responses i've had, but open to any suggestions.

    Thanx in advance

    Well I don't put much stock into this thing of receivers being bright or forward or warm or having some sort of attitude. Your perception of the 'quality' is a function of your speakers and room interactions. That said, and not knowing what's available where you live, and keeping in mind that this is an entry level receiver, I think you should focus your attention on speakers with good sensitivity that are 8 ohm nominal impedance. What's available in your price range where you are only you can answer.

    Yeah- w/ an entry level receiver, you should get the best bargain in terms of high quality speaker that you can get and worry about matching it w/ the receiver later.
