Which receiver for Celestions F-series?


Unregistered guest
I'm going to audition Celestions (5.1 F-series) paired with Denon AVR 1804 - the only available for the test. Now my question is - based on your knowledge and experience - what can you tell me about such setup? Is it well-matched? Or should I rather try them with HK AVR 230, NAD T743 or maybe Yamaha RXV 750? How do they couple with different kinds of receivers?

The listening environment is:

25sq.m room with some reflexive surfaces, bare
walls and terra cotta floor. The setup will be contained within a 3x4m square with fronts positioned 40cm from the wall.

70% stereo music (preferably in surround)
some DTS, some DVD-Audio, some mp3's. All kinds
of music except jazz.

30% DVDs - rock concerts, movies.

thank you

Try the NAD 743 and the Marantz 4500 for the Celestion type of sound and drivers...

I own celestions F30s with a NAD T743. Sounds great!! Very smooth and no fatique. Only downside is the hissing sound which is produced by the T743.
