Onkyo TX-NR626 vs. Sony STR-DN1040 based on my speakers?
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.
And plan on buying the following sub (recomendations are welcome for my sub:
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.
