  1. Yeah, I don't know what to believe from these websites anymore, one website claimed that the OSD amp weighed 55 pounds. And then rates each channel 150 watts at 8 ohm and 200 at 4 ohm. I knew its specs are too good to be true. I'll look more into NAD, thanks.
  2. So in reality, is it even possible deliver 150 watts RMS to a speaker that can play at 150 watts continuously?
  3. Yeah, I noticed that their wattage ratings seem almost like a scam, only to attract attention, while they hide the true power.
  4. I think I had a typo, I meant the 3500H. I couldn't find anything relevant to my setup from NAD, this amp is the one I was going for, OSD Audio XA5180 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074415515/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_3?smid=A2QGVVI9PYOV9V&psc=1 I think both of them together should be more than enough for my 5 channel setup.
  5. What if I'm running 5 channels, but 105 watts per channel on the receiver and 120 watts from the amplifier, in that case is there really an advantage in running an amplifier?
  6. Do you know if adding an AMP will add more power to the receiver, or will it simply divide the task of providing power to the speakers. So if I had a 105 WPC receiver and added a 120 WPC AMP, would that mean each channel now has up to 225 WTP?
  7. I took your advice and changed by amp to the Denon 4500H, I will be getting an OSD 5 Channel amp as well.
  8. That's good enough for me then, I live on the second floor of an apartment building, luckily my surrounding neighbors also have home theater, so I won't be causing trouble. It sounds like it would be adequate for some movies and mainly rock/jazz listening.
  9. Duly noted, I will look for a better pre amp.
  10. I have decided to go with the receiver (Yamaha RX-V685) https://tinyurl.com/yd63ppd8 and preamp (Rockville BluTube SG 70W) https://tinyurl.com/y8w3kdgy . Hopefully things will go well, thanks for all the help.
  11. In that case, wouldn't Yamaha RX-V685 be a good option? It has 90 watts per channel, and has pre-out for front and subs.
  12. So what would you recommend me to get to power these speakers? I'm still lost here. I have people saying a lower model Yamaha would do just fine, while others are saying a higher model rated at 125 watts per channel is bare minimum.
  13. So, what you're saying is that I should prioritize features when looking for a good receiver, and leave the power handling to a dedicated amplifier. This idea is new to me, do you have any suggestions of a receiver and amp combo for my setup? Also, good to hear you like things clean.
  14. Interesting, so I don't actually need speakers that can output 150 watts per channel? If the Yamaha RX-V683BL are good enough for me, then that would save me alot of time and money. I was told by others that apparently, something like the Denon X4400H is the bare minimum if I want to get decent quality out of my Klipsch setup. What would I really be losing if I don't go for the much more expensive Denon receiver and choose the Yamahas?
