Hi, I bought the kenwood receiver at BBY when they were giving out the KLH HTA-4906 speaker system with it. I know the speakers are crappy but hear me out. I listened to yamaha 5560 w/ JBL SCS150SI speaker system and when I turned the volume to really loud, the sound started to distort. does that mean the reciever can't put out enough power with all channels running? or it's putting out more than the speakers could handle or was the speakers at fault? SCS150SI Speakers are rated to handle 100w and sub 150w. Now the question is how come my KLH speakers don't distort at ALL with volume at max on my reciever(kenwood). Volume isn't that loud even at but still they don't distort. is kenwood underpowered?? or my KLH speakers are better than JBL? that would totally suck. Also, another thing is that some person posted that pioneer 811S puts out 70+w with all channels running. Would you guys recommend pioneer, kenwood, or yammy?? I don't care about price of these reciever since the price range is about the same w/ my discount at Best Buy. granted yammy is most expensive then comes kenwood and pioneer being the cheapest but in the end i want something i'm really satisfied with. Also, would it be better to sell the KLH on ebay and use the money to buy the SCS150SI package. that would mean i can't return the kenwood anymore. those are my questions and I hope u can help me decide. Sorry for long post. Thanx in advance.
