  1. Thank you Kamidioblitz for the advice! I had looked at the RP502s and was definitely curious about them. I'll have to find a place to hear those. And I'll definitely weigh the options as far as picking up the x6500 as well. Thanks again!
  2. Thanks so much Ceptorman! I really appreciate that. I found google to be very difficult with this and it's great to get folks with obvious knowledge who are willing to share. I'm grateful. :)
  3. Thank you Kamidioblitz for your response! That's awesome that you were able to run a 7.2.4 without an external amp. Very cool. I'm a little confused as to how to interpret the power handling (continuous vs peak) specs. For example, does the 150 watts continuous and 600 watts peak (listed for the RP-8000F) mean that's what they need or what they can handle? Am I supposed to be aiming for 150 watts of output from an AVR/amp or is that number not terribly useful in real practice? Anyway, just thinking out loud. Not trying to grill you with questions. Thanks again for your response.
  4. Thanks Matt! I'm glad to hear it should be good for starters. I was hoping to not deal with an amplifier just yet. Thanks so much for your advice! Much appreciated.
  5. Hi everyone. I’m new to this forum and was hoping for some advice or guidance. I’m buying a Denon AVR-X4500H and using it to power a 5.1 Klipsch system (504C for the center channel, 8000F for front L & R, and 5000F for surrounds). I will likely be adding 2 5000F towers for the rear surrounds as well to take it to a 7.1 setup. My room is about 11 x 21, but I only utilize about an 11 x 11 square for the system. It’s an open floor plan so the right side is open, but unused. It's also opened at the back. I’m trying to build this system with an eye towards a more dedicated space in the future and so while I know the Denon can handle well beyond 7.1 (especially in a small space), I’m planning on eventually adding 4 Atmos speakers and perhaps another sub to get to 7.2.4. So my question is: if I use a 3-channel amp to power the front stage, will the Denon be enough to power four surrounds (all towers) and four Atmos overheads while still having enough juice to do whatever other processing it needs with TV and such (honestly not sure if that requires any wattage from the avr)? All the Klipsch speakers I’m using are very efficient but I’m trying to find out if I move into a better, perhaps larger space, if I’ll have enough power without having to add more amplifiers (which I guess I could do down the road). Thanks so much for your thoughts and suggestions. I’m grateful! Carl
