Hi

The speakers you have are fine so look out for a 5.1 AVR where you can hook up all speakers.....in terms of subwoofers, there are many available, depending on size, appearance and performance, you need to audition with your kind of music and decide...look at different brands and shortlist what appeals to you....

In terms of DVD players, there are many brands available cheap....depends on your budget.....better to go for a Blu Ray player which will help to read movies as well through USB and you can enjoy all the special effects in sound......Pioneer, Panasonic, LG are good strong brands......

If budget is a challenge, look at the For Sale by Owner section for good deals on pre owned stuff or Hi Fi Ads....all the best!

Hi

If buying a pre owned AVR, please check if all features are working fine to your expectations.......if yes....go for it......

Else look out for other options that match your budget and requirements.

Hi,

Not able to decide between Denon And Yamaha- AVR brand and model.

Which will go better with my Jamo S426 speakers and Marantz CD payer 5004.

Presently my speakers sound feels great on low to mid level volume but when I increase the volume it sounds painful to the ear - why is this- any ideas how to correct this.

What capacity watt in AVR is required to drive my speakers 100 Watts continious and 140 Watts peak.

I will be greatful if you could suggest a AVR make and model upto one or two years old.

The AVR should- allow a pre amp output for more power to be added by simply connecting my Enbee ZX power amp.

Many thanks,

Cheers.

continued....

My Enbee ZX1 and ZX80 PREAMP & AMPs are 80 RMS kindly note.

Are the ok to drive my Jamo S426 speakers which are 100 Watt constant and 140 watts peak.

Can I couple my AMPs with an AVR to increse watts.

Hi

The Jamos 426 run on a 6 ohms load.....Any AVR which has atleast 70w RMS @ 8 ohms load will be able to drive them without a sweat!

Look for AVRs which have the required connectivity options you are looking out for...

No point going for an AVR which is famous for performance or brand when you are not able to hook up the intended speakers or devices / components....

Golden rule is audition before purchase....all the best
