I have a pair of Klipsch RF-35 package although i'm goign to be using either rsw-10 or 12 instead of rw12. I'm looking for a reciever to push them. The dealer suggests Rotel RSX-1056. However I'm not sure if there is a better one out there for me. I listen to about 60%ht and 40% music. I realize that listening to the reciever in my house is the best way, but i'm hoping to limit the number of recievers i need to test. I'm looking to stay under $1500 but willing to take suggestions if i should spend more
Try the Outlaw Audio 950/7100 combination. An absolute gem and would pair most graciously with the RF-35.
I also am wondering what would be a good match to a pair of Klipsch KSF 8.5's. I am currently running a yamaha which I got a great deal on a while ago. But like most people say...it runs a little bright and I'm looking to fill out the lower end. I'm trying to keep it under $1000. also would buying a two channel amp do the trick as well? or switching the impedence load to 6 for my fronts? thanks in advance
Matt, See dynaco.com and look at the Elite vsx-56txi for $997. This will drive the Klipsch very well and help tame their brightness more than any other receiver you will find. You might even find that the Elite 54 fills your needs and it's only $699.
thanks for the advice...i'll do some research on those. i wasn't aware that there was an elite model out there so cheap!
i had checked a 5300 and compared it to pioneer elite 54 now at 90 watts it pumped good power but did not much options on dsp as the newer 54 but considering thier upgrades 5400 and 5500 should do a good job
