Count me in as a Pioneer Elite A/V owner too. Really like it for both HT and music. Very detailed, plenty of power.

I have a Marantz 5300 and love it. GREAT for music and pretty damn good for movies as well It was pushing my 60 just find, but was able to get a Sunfire Cinema Grand amp for next to nothing so I just had to go to that. Although my sub is using the Marantz for the connection.

Hey, somebody had to represent Yamaha in here. I've been using a RXV1400 in a 7.1 setup with M60s, VP150, QS8s and M2s, and an SVS sub.

Extremely pleased, though I think the speakers are key contributors to the nicely balanced sound I've been enjoying. I use the space for primarily HT viewing but also SACD and DVDA surround listening. Great soundstage, extremely detailed, smooth midrange and nice blending into the lows from from the SVS. Plays LOUD enough if asked to drive any sane person out of the room without distortion.

I've had a mix of amps/receivers before, and I have absolutely no complaints with this Yamaha - it's a good piece.

I'll also put in a vote for the Yami's. I use a V2600 to push my Axioms and it does a terrific job and while I wanted it for its HDMI handling, the V1600 would be in your price range but minus some of the clever video stuff (the audio section is pretty much the same). Thanks to this set up I've now rekindled my interst in listening to music (even though the setup was originally intented to HT).

From my (limited) experience you not going to get a "warm" sound from your Axioms regardless of your amp....your going to get brutally honest. The first track I played when my Axioms arrived was "From Paris To Berlin" and the lead female vocal sounded like a snake and I was crushed. Turnes out the sibilance is a recoding issue you just don't hear with that "warm" car radio sound!

I am not sure about the pricing, but I am using an NAD C372 amp. This system is only two channel stereo. The sound is great.
You can crank the tunes all night, nice and clean.

Harman Kardon AVR-135. Believe it or not, it does the trick just fine.

So Jordan, how is the system working out?

Hi Chess,

The system is working out great. I am very happy with the M60's. I was worried that maybe I had over-inflated my expectations in the 7 week wait period but they managed to meet, even exceed, my expectations.

I was also worried that the AVR135 might be a bit on the weak side. I'm happy to report that it has more than enough power for my needs. I don't even come close to running it full-out. Mind you, it won't likely reach 106db like at your place.

I'm trying to find a SPL Meter but am having a difficult time at it. L&M have them in from time to time but they are a bit touch and go.

I think the next step down the line is to get a centre channel. I wish that I had paid more attention to the 150 last time I was over at your place. However, I was more focussed on the M60s at that time.

All the best,
