I have a Sony, STR-DE445 (80 watts/channel)that powers a pair of 40 year old 15" JBL front speakers and a pair of new Klipsch surround speakers. However, I'm unable to get the levels balanced. As an experiment, I got out my previous receiver, a Technics, SA-GX790(100 watts/channel), and was able to balance the front and back speakers. I noticed in doing this, that the Technics had about twice the numeric readout for leveling that the Sony had. Only problem is the old Technics doesn't have 5.1 decoding capability, but at least I proved to myself, that with the right receiver, my speakers can be balanced. So I'm on a quest for a new receiver that has a greater leveling differential than the Sony. Technics no longer makes receivers, but I see that Panasonic has a model, SA-HE200K that looks like it may have some promise. Any comments about this Panasonic, or my problem in general? Thanks for any input.
