Immediately realized I'm going to need to upgrade the receiver sooner than I had hoped. It just doesn't seem to have the juice to drive these.

If your receiver has pre-outs, you can keep your current receiver and add an external amp.

Other than audyssey what do you guys use to tune everything? It's hard to find a song or movie/video that plays certain sounds long enough to calibrate everything

I don't have that fancy Audessey thingy everyone uses as a crutch! [*-)]

I got me an SPL meter from RS and use test tones from my OPPO to set the trims, distance and size of the speaker. [;)]

I think when you first get a new avr and especially when you are new in this hobby , use Auddysee or MCACC and just listen to things for a few week You have to listen to a lot of material to get a good handle on how things sound and how they should sound before you can tweak a system effectively. Heck, I am still learning things about tweaking the system.

Remember that the 82s are rear ported and like to be pulled away from the wall a bit.

Just ditched my Onkyo 707 because of HDMI issues and went with Pioneer SC-1222K. Has RCA outs for all channels. Class D amps as well. Costco has a special on them online for $479 delivered.

I believe Emotiva is shutting down the Sherbourn line and hence offering very deep discounts on some very good products. It's 49$ over your limit, but check out this one Sherbourn SR-8100.

I knew they had some cheap stuff, but I'm surprised at some of the prices on those products. Too bad most are sold out. 400$ for a 2,000$ processor seems ridiculous and too good to be true.
