    Based on what I seen on the boards and read, and heard, I have just purchased a Onkyo SR602..

    I was planning on purchasing the Paradigm Cinema 70CT based again on what I have seen here, and heard. But in looking at the specs, I see the speakers are rated for a amplifer for 15-80 watts, and the Onkyo is 85 per channel. Can I still use the 602 with them with that extra 5 per channel?

    As long as your not over-shooting the mark by a lot you'll be fine...it's actually better for your speakers if your receiver is a little over powered.
