    Okay getting the finals things ready for college...

    I have decided on a receiver, I think.
    Let me know your opinions on it, since I am a total HT newb.
    http://www.jr.com/JRProductPage.process?Product=4031471
    or
    http://www.jr.com/JRProductPage.process?Product=4028950

    If anyone has any other options to throw out there, that would be great

    Also I will just be using 2 speakers and sub for right now. I cant do 5 or 6 in the dorm room.
    Thats okay with the receivers right?

    For sub, probably and RE Re series 8", not positive.

    Speakers
    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-TSx342s...900&I=107RTI4B

    But again, I am not sure if those are good speakers or not.

    I might not be necesarily buying from these places, just showing what I have selected.

    Any input at all would be swell.



    Best receiver ever?
    I think so

    Hey, I ran two JBL 3way studio monitors and 250W pushing a Shiva in my room

    As for the original poster, I would stay away from Polk Audio gear. I haven't been impressed by their offerings. You could build a pair of speakers for a whole lot less, and have the money to upgrade the receiver.

    Those were some fun times, having that much **** in the room...now I get to pack all my gear into my apartment...ooh, more room for stuff

    an FR125 in a bass reflex cabinet would make a really simple, really nice full range monitor. You wouldn't even need a tweeter/crossover for it.

    I was hoping the HT god would see this

    Which of those receivers do you like more?
    Or should I try and go with a more expensive one?

    Out of those?

    I would pick the Denon

    Onkyo and Harmon Kardon are two other brands to look for.

    Thanks

    Im liking the looks of those speakers.
    But will they sound better than a seperate mid/tweeter setup?
    Also it doesnt list the rms, or maybe I am blind.

    Depends on your tastes. Personally, I like the sound of a full range setup, provides a real "point source" and is also easier to build...you don't need to design/build crossovers for them But it all depends on your tastes. The WR125 is meant to be used with a tweeter if you want to go with a more traditional two way setup...Exodus Audio even sells complete kits with them. However, that's slightly more work.

    http://www.creativesound.ca/pdf/CSS-FR125-intro.pdf

    That's the info sheet for the FR125 driver...it's not loading very fast for me, but it'll probably work for someone not on 56k.

    I have no idea how to do crossover nextworks and all that other stuff.

    Is there any reviews on those speakers?

    It looks like we might have a winner.
    But I dont know about their power handling.
