    I was wondering if the Marantz SR7000 has enough power for Dynaudio 72 or 82.Was thinking of upgrading to dynaudio or Mirage om7 or om9.Any help would be appreciated.

    I would think that you shouldn't have any trouble with the Mirage speakers at 8 ohms and 90db sensitivity. The 4 ohm load Dynaudio's might give you some grief though.

    I also think the SR7000 will have a difficult time driving the Dynaudios.

    Ricky,
    You should visit the Dynaudio website see below.
    I drive my Dynaudios (Contour 2.8 towers-not in production anymore) with 200 watts @4 Ohms in a medium room. This is so I have plenty of headroom for really loud passages. They are rated at 86dB sensitivity.
    I don't know what your Marantz has for amp power, the 82 are more efficient than the 72.
    You would find the following on the website:
    Audience 72
    Sensitivity (2.83 V/1 m):
    86 dB
    Recommended Amp. Power:
    Small size rooms: >25 watts
    Medium size rooms: >65 watts
    Large size rooms: >125 watts
    IEC Long Term Power Handling:
    210 watts
    Impedance, Nominal:
    4 ohms
    Audience 82
    Sensitivity (2.83 V/1 m):
    87 dB
    Recommended Amp. Power:
    Medium size rooms: >50 watts
    Large size rooms: >100 watts
    IEC Long Term Power Handling:
    300 watts
    Impedance, Nominal:
    4 ohms

    Why not use the Dynaudio 122's. They are the best of both worlds when it comes to efficiency and the sweet sound of Dynaudio's.
