Yamaha RXV750 and JBL SCS 200.7 speakers?


Unregistered guest
I have just bought a used Yamaha RXV750 speaker for use in my home theatre. I am looking for a 7 speakers plus a sub to go with it. Rightly or wrongly, my significant other likes the LOOK of the small JBL speakers. I am just curious to see if any of the expert here has ever paired the JBL small speakers (i.e. the SCS 200.7 or the 300.7) with a Yamaha receiver?

Although the JBL SCS series has a decent subwoofer, I think their mini/satellite speakers are a little muffled, on any receiver.

Any suggestions for smallish speakers for a Yamaha receiver? I can see that I will not win the big/small argument with my wife. Personally, I have never owned mini speakers in my entire life, are there any good ones?

What is your budget?
You are looking for something about the size of the SCS speakers, correct?

Check out the Athena Micra 6.

oh and a lot of folks are raving about Orb Audio and apparently it has a great WAF. You may want to check that out also.

The Mirage Omnisats are worth looking at.

You might want to just trade in your significant other and get the best speakers you can!!!! :-)

No specific instructions...just a note as a reminder to check the cross over frequencies/base management features on the Yammy (my old one had one cross over at 85mhz).
If you buy smallish speakers like the JBL I think they only go down to 100Mhz so you might have a gap in the audio spectrum. (you may have good base management on a DVD player that could compensate though...).

Just food for thought.
