Onkyo TX-NR626 vs. Sony STR-DN1040 based on my speakers?

Amps, Pre-Pros & Receivers - forums.audioholics.com
Howdy,

First off, great site; this is my first post and am excited to join the whole crew here.

I recently just started to have a re-kindled interest in my home theater/audio system after being absent for many, many years.

That said, I am a newbie at all of this so please bear with me.

I am looking to purchase a new receiver for my home theater system and have a few questions about which one would be best for my set up.

Per the title, I am debating between the Onkyo TX-NR626 & Sony STR-DN1040. These maybe a little overkill for me right now but am looking for a high quality receiver to hold on to for several years with internet connectivity.

Any thoughts on these receivers with my speakers (below)? Not sure if the Sony STR-DN1040 with 165 watts per channel is too much. I didn't spent a lot of money on my speakers (paid a fraction of their websites listed price) and don't want to spent more money on my receiver than my speakers can handle.

Front speakers:

S-FIT TWR 1050

Center speaker:

S-FIT CTR 350

And plan on buying the following sub (recomendations are welcome for my sub:

Baby Boomer Powered Sub

New rear surround speakers will be purchased soon too (again, recommendations are welcome).

Any thoughts on these receivers with my speakers? I love watching movies at fairly high volume and also enjoy listening to various styles of music every day (looking for a receiver that is both good for music listening and movie watching).

Again, I'm a newbie so all comments are welcome. I'm eager to learn.

Thanks,

p.
