This is my first post here and I tried to do a search before posting but didn't find much. I aplogize in advance if you're reanswering questions and if the questions seem a bit newbish . While shopping around I fell in love with the monitor 7's in store and being from Canada the performance/price ratio to my ears is amazing. That being said, these speakers leave me a bit budget constrained for receivers...I'm looking at the HK AVR130 and was wondering if it would be adequate to power the speakers. I eventually plan on adding a CC-370 center and mini surrounds over the course of the next year although I doubt I'll be adding a sub anytime soon (after listening to the monitor 7's a budget sub seems redundant and a higher end one probably isn't in the near future). My main use will be listening to cd's, but I'd like to build a nice HT setup out of it too. I'm not sure if it's conisdered bad form to cross post the same topic (here and in the receivers section) so I'll leave it here and see what kind of responses I get .
