They make a great combo!!
I try running just the m80's with your reciever set to large and sub turned off.


I don't believe I have that particular feature on my receiver. All of the other pre-set configurations on it though now sound different(for the better)

Sorry maybe I just Phrased it wrong. They claim around 200wpc acd. If you set your receiver to stereo(left&right)They claim around 400 wpc. So if you go into your receivers speaker settings and select "large" for the mains, then set the sub pre out to "off" the reciever will send all the signal to the 80's \:\)
Or if you want to still hear the sub you could leave it on and lower the mains crossover down to around 40hz

I have been keeping an eye on the XPA-5, and the future UMC-2 (I think) processor with decoding of all the new audio codecs. I may have to jump on this combo later this year after my M80s arrive ;\)

The Yamaha can drive the M80's. It's the way that the Yamaha drives the speakers that's in question. As another post in another forum put it, the receiver he was using seemed to blend all the instruments together creating a muddled effect. Using the amp clearly defines and separates the instruments and vocals. In addition when the Yamaha was cranked up the sound becomes increasingly flat and distorts a little bit.
This to me, still sounds like a good reason to not recommend Yamaha for M80's as I do not experience anything like that with either of my Denons.

Jason,

Have you ever used an external amp with your M80s? \:\) If not, then I guess ignorance is bliss eh? :P

I agree. At least not by itelf

I'm really happy though it worked out this way for me. It has help me understand one of the reasons why people purchase separates as opposed to having a "all-In-One" solution receiver. Perhaps if I chose the M60's with the 8 ohm rating the Yamaha would have sounding more appealing to me. All I know, for me, this has put me on a new path of using separates here on out.

zzyzx, just out of curiosity about your sig., it's the name of a road and I believe a small town in San Bernardiono County. I remember the zzyzx road offramp from road trips to Vegas, any relation?

As others have said, I'm glad it worked out for you.

I wonder whats happening with the electronics to give you the sound you had with the RXV1800?
