Hey everyone,
I have a set of yamaha speakers. They have
a bright sound and I want to get a reciever
that will mellow them out. I have about $600
to spend. What are your suggestions?

Marantz SR5500 would be the best choice. It's smooth, warm, full and powerfull with good set of features.
New H/K models have an annoyingly bright upper treble.

I would agree with the Marantz, but add that the H/K 330 does not appear bright to me. I would say that H/K and Yamaha would be a nice combo. I would add Kenwood Sovereign, Pioneer Elite, and NAD to that list

great thanks for the info. I was thinking either Marantz or H/K. One other question. What sub would you suggest to go along with the yamaha speakers?

Well the sub would not be relative to a certain brand of speakers, subs are able to mesh much more easily with multiple systems. I don't know how much you are willing to spend but I would suggest the following companies: HSU, SVS, REL, Earthquake, Velodyne, Definitive Technolgy and a few others but for the most part those are great sub manufacturers

Barstow...I see you are in Boston, is it Boston proper or on the outskirts? I am actually moving on Monday to the cape :-)

One other question, is there a huge difference between getting a H/K 330 or a Yamaha 650?

Barstow...My wife's family has property in South Dennis and Hopedale. We are actually going to live in the house in S. Dennis for the time being while we build a house, probably in the area of Plymouth down to Taunton, we want to be around half the distance to Boston from the cape. It's a beautiful area I just hope I can get used to the cold weather again, I am originally from England so I have experienced this but only as a child. I have been in Nashville, Dallas, and Atlanta for the past 24 years so I am accustomed to a warmer climate. Oh well, at least I can ski in the winter :-)

To be honest I don't have much experience with Yamaha speakers and you don't mention a model number, but if their speakers tend to be bright like their receivers I would say this would not be a good combo. But as I said I don't have any idea how Yamaha speakers sound so take it with a grain of salt. I would assume, however, that they are in fact a brighter speaker and therefore the H/K would be a better fit.

You might try NAD as well. Here's a store in the Boston area

Landroval,

Which HK models have the annoyingly bright upper treble. Are you talking about the new Avr.35 series or the avr.30's.

I wouldn't characterize the sound of the AVR330 as exceptionally bright (of course speakers would make a difference). Just curious about what you think.

Bleustar,

I'm talking about the AVR130 and AVR230. The AVR430 is slightly different, warmer and more controlled. I felt the AVR130 trebles were slightly bright and the sound balance was more cold than warm, even if the bass departement was ok.
