    I'm looking at a Yamaha speaker set that comes with a reciever. The model I'm looking at is YHT340. They are rated at 85 watts per channel, the room these will be installed in is 10x10. Are these powerful enough for the room? What is the sound quality of Yamaha in general? Are these worth buying? Any input would be a great help since I plan on purchasing a system within the next 2 weeks.

    Thanks

    John might I suggest a Yamaha RX-V440 receiver and some paradigm speakers....Thats what I'm using and it makes a great setup. They put out a quality product. I've never heard any of the speakers. But I'm happy with my receiver!

    Yeah I have a RXV-440 and I love it. But their home theaters in a box are the best I know of. At least they make decent speakers. I bought my brother the YHT-100 low end system and he loves it. Just go listen to it if you can and see for yourself.

    I looked at a Yamaha YHT-300 set once when shopping for a smaller HTIB set-up a little over a year ago. I remember thinking the receiver was very nice feature-wise, but the smallish speakers sounded rather strained (to me) at volumes that didn't seem particularly high.

    If the Yamaha bikes I looked at are half as nice as their receivers, you should be set [​IMG]

    Gotta love a Yammie. Built like a tank and voiced like an angel. :)

    In my opinion Yamaha recievers or kinda bright sounding.
    Maybe its meets a price point for you. But I would try and demo it in your setup and try a Denon, Marantz or Onkyo.
    Also Rule of Thumb Buy speakers form a company that only makes speakers. Such as JbL, Polk, Energy, Definitve , Paradim, Canton, Mission, Magnat, Heco, or any other comapny that just makes speakers.

    Also when listening to the reciver make sure u use the same speaker setup when trying a different reciever with the same cd or dvd Perferable something you are used to listening to.


    Hope that helps
