This is my first post and iam a complete axiom newb so feel free to be as harsh as possible lol....no really. In the next month or so iam looking to getting the vp150 v3, m60 v3, and qs8 v3. Now the question/concerns i have are my receiver is an ONKYO TX-NR807, how would this perform with the setup alone and potentially down the road with an xpa-3 or 5? Ive been told that Yamaha might be a better choice but iam in the less than 1k range so should i stick with what i got or can any one recommend a good receiver Yamaha or any others? Primarily HT use Thanks any input is greatly appreciated

The Onk will do a great job with the speakers you chose. You don't mention how large of a room you have.

I am sure your reciever alone could do a fine job. M60's and VP150 are easy to drive. I wouldn't say such if you were looking for the M80's and VP180.

I just bought an onkyo 3007 a couple weeks ago..and so far I have no issue with it. my room size 19 by 17 by 9 with cathedral ceiling. I got my receiver from london drugs at clearance for $1100.


It's no use carrying an umbrella, if your shoes are leaking.

You have to count all of the wall to wall area, because this is the amount of space the sound will have to fill, not just the listening area. More space means a bigger need for more speakers and more power.

Edit: This doesn't mean that I think what you are ordering is insufficient, but it's just a word of caution.

ok then my measurements of the whole basement is approx. 32'L X 32'w, also would upgrading to a xpa 3 or 5 be a good pairing with my setup or should i hold out for the m80 line?

If the 80's are, or will be within budget than absolutely go that route.

The Onkyo is rated at 135 watts/ch, so most likely you will never need additional power that you may never use or recognize anyway. The m60's or m80's do not require a lot of power to play VERY loud, so in the majority of situations a receiver of even 90-100 watts would be fine, even in your room. Keep in mind that doubling the wattage, only gains you 3dB's.

I would say buy as much power as you can comfortably afford. If you like it loud the Onk might not cut it. I would also suggest you upgrade to the M80s and VP180.
