Hi all, I am a first time poster on this forum and would appreciate some help with upgrading my HT. I currently have Onkyo HT760 HTIB and I am fully satisfied with its movie capabilities, but as far as the music goes, I would like something better. Due to the small living room (13X18) and other considerations, I would like to get a new receiver + floorstanding mains or 2.1 setup. However, I want to be able to upgrade that to full HT in the future and use it in larger room. I have about 2000-2500 $ total for that and, again, my main interest is music. I listen to rock a lot, but also all kinds of other stuff as well. Good bass is a definite plus for me, but I would prefer good overall tonal balance. From what I have been reading, Axiom M80Ti’s seem really a perfect fit for my needs and I really like what I read about their balanced, airy sound with great soundstage. So, I am considering getting them or maybe M22Ti’s with SVS PC+ cylinder subs. So, my first question is whether this setup makes sense or should I consider other speakers? Looking for the suitable receiver, I came across Yamaha RX-V2400. It would be right in my price range and has tremendous reviews. However, here are my two concerns: 1)I think it is rated 4 ohms, but still I am not sure whether it’s a good match with M80Ti? Audioholics.com review says that 4 ohm 89 dB speakers, they used, sounded nice, but a bit rough. However, that’s comparing to 4000-5000+$ receiver. 2)Its description says: “Nine Adjustable bass management settings (40Hz to 200Hz, 10Hz step sizes from 80-120Hz)”. Does it make it a good match with SVS cylinder subs? The other one would be Sony DA4ES. How do these two compare? So, should I consider other receiver model for this setup in 1000$ price range or is there a more suitable receiver in that price range? Thanks, any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
