I am looking for a receiver for either Paradigm or PSB speakers. I have listen to paradigms Monitor 9 and I'll audition PSB Image series soon before deciding between them. I would like to get some idea about what receiver would go well with them ?
My first thought was to have NAD, but may be higher end Onkyo or Denon should also go well with them ? The receiver should be surround sound (5.1 at least) capable and should have HDMI to connect to my HDTV. I looking for something around $1000 for receiver , I hope that gives me good receiver to pair with those speakers.
If someone has experience with those receivers and speakers combination, please share your opinion. Thanks.
NAD goes well with Paradigm and especially PSB. I know from experience on that one. Look at the Onkyo line though and take a listen to see what you think. They are a very good AVR as well. IMO I can't stand the sound of anything Denon makes but thats just my ears, doesn't mean you might not like it. Rotel AVR's go well with Paradigm as well. Best thing for you to do is go out and audition some stuff, see what you like the best.
Onkyo TX-SR805 around $1k seems to be be powerful enough to drive NAD. I guess I need to find a dealer and listen to onkyo, see how I feel compare to NAD. If anyone has experience with this receiver please let me know.
