i am looking to finally upgrade about a 4 year old Pioneer reciever to something that will have more features and better match my JBL Studio line speakers.
I have the BIG JBL 4-way Studio front speakers with the 200 watt subwoofers in them along with an S Center channel and two Studio 3-way "Plasma" series rear speakers.
So far, i have narrowed my search down to either a Yamaha HTR-5890 or the Onkyo 702. I like both of these units for their specs and because they have the automatic room calibration features and can be found for $600-$700 at Onecall.com.
But i am by no means an audio *expert* and wonder if certain brands of receivers sound better with certain brands of speakers? I would say i play about 60% music and maybe 40% movies.
i guess i am leaning towards the Yamaha a little more because it seems to have quite a bit more power for only $100 more.
so do you think it would be a virtual toss-up between the Yamaha and the Onkyo or would another brand mesh better with the JBL speakers?
thanks for any help you can give me!
