Confused need help...Yamaha RX-V481/ RX-V581 with Fluance speakers

AV Cables


Dec 2, 2016
Hi, new guy here and my first post I think.

I am in the US and have brought the Fluance SX6 bookshelf 8ohms, and will be buying it's fluance center too and a polk sub 10inch may be... since my room is not quite big(10x18) front speaker to sofa is around 8feet so I will not be putting in a tower right away.

Now I want the setup to be 5.1 to begin with(may be 7.1 later) as I ll be using it for both music and movies. I want to know if Yamaha Rx-V581 would be good match for the Fluance speakers or would be too bright or too warm for them? I have read that Yamaha RX-V series is warm and soothing as it is, is this right info? and would I be good to go with a 1kva SDT(Stepdown trans) to use this system with RX-V581 and the Polk sub, with both needing around saying 700 watts?

Also I have a pair of good bookshelf speakers around 12 years old from a sharp audio system but 6ohm which sound good even now can I use these as rear speakers? Or would it be an issue considering my fluance front and center with 8ohm and rear at 6ohm?

All your inputs are highly appreciated and thank you
