I recently purchased a Yamaha HTR-5890 Receiver and some JBL surround speakers. What I would like to do is connect some of my old equipment to it. I would like to take the Front and Surround pre-output of the HTR-5890 and connect them to different Amplifiers. Here is my planned configuration: I would take a one pair of Infinity SM150 and connect them to a Yamaha MX-600 Power Amp, which would be connected to the Front pre-output of the 5890. Next, I would take two pair of JBL SCS200 and connect them to the Front and Rear channel of a Yamaha DSP-E300, which would be connected to the Surround pre-output (one pair) of the 5890. Lastly (without using any Amplifiers) I would take a pair of the JBL SCS200 and connect them to the Rear channel of the 5890. The center speaker to the Center channel of the 5890. And, a pair of JBL E-10 (kinda like di-poles) to the Presence channel of the 5890. Do you guys think I am way over my head....ie. the music won't sound good. I won't be able to configure the delay properly on the DSP-E300. I should use the E-10 in the rear channel. All opinions are strongly welcomed. Here is a link to the configuration I am thinking about: http: // jamestongol.com / audio.gif Remove all spaces between the URL's...I am still on trial membership that's why I can't post URLs. But I thought that a picture is worth a thousand words.
