Help in selecting a receiver (Yahama, Denon, Pioneer, H/K)


I currently have the following speakers:

Infinity IL 30 (left/right)
Infinity IL 36 (center)
Infinity IL 120 (sub)
Klipsch Quintet (surround left, righ and 1 back)

I'll probably end up replacing the Klipsch at some point but in the meantime they seem to do fine. Also, I'm about 60/40 between movies and music respectively.

I'm considering the following receivers:
Yamaha RX-V1300
Pioneer Elite VSX-43TX
H/K AVR 525
Denon 1803/1804

Oddly, I have been able to find each of these around the same price.

I would greatly appreciate any input on which receiver would match the best with my current speakers and listening habits.


I would not get the Yamaha or the Denon, they are both very bright sounding and thus are not good matches for your Infinity speakers. I would go for the Elite or the HK. Both are excellent receivers...have wonderful power supplies and both sound mellow and will mellow out your bright speakers.

Johnny is right on the money. Denon and Yamaha would not be a good match. Elite and H/K would be much better sonically and have much better power supplies.

Thank you very much for the great info.
