Re: A good receiver for Harman Kardon HKTS 60?

I will check out the yamaha right now Well, have u thought about the onkyo 608? Yes, im gonna stick with the HKTS 60, EISA and HIFITEST.DE cant both go wrong lol, besides they do sound better now than befor i first wrote the post. I do have some really awsome speakers back home, dynavoice f-6 floorstanding speaker set 5.1. However im studying and living in a dormroom, so cant fit them in. Wen i was home for christmass i got a chanse to compare the dynavoice f-6 speakers with my old reciever and the new sony, and it was a huge difference. Wen i played them trough sony they sounded kinda muddy yet thin, like things were blended into a caos. And the bass was wery boomy and loose, not tight at all. I cant use my old receiver cause it only got one hdmi input, so cant hook it up to the cable tv and blue ray player and the ps3. Therefore i know use sony. Havent goten the chanse to pklay the HKTS 60 thorugh my old receiver, but the fact that my dynavoice speakers sounded so different i do have a clue about how much better the HKTS would sound through a better receiver. Im currently looking at Yamaha 767 and Onkyo 608.

Re: A good receiver for Harman Kardon HKTS 60?

To be honest? No, i dont think the HKTS are much better than the 20's, maby abit when playing music. Listening to movies i really cant hear any difference after switching th ebass boost off (witch i also did on the 20's, but forgot doing on the 60). I might return the 60 and spend the left over money on a better receiver. But then again, this sony receiver are sounds like , even compared to my old receiver. So for all i know the 60's would ound awsome on another amp. They did win the EISA award, and got another great review in HIFITEST.DE. The last test are written in german, so i used google translate to read it, and they were very happy with the sound. Another thing, i cant adjust the mid level on the sony, only the bass and treble.

Cool, i think i will stick to getting the hkts60's as well. I did have a look at the onkyo and it looks great but it cost more then the yamaha 667.

I'm looking at the onkyo 608 now and see how cheap i can get it for also the Pioneer 1020 is comparable.

Where are you from?

Yes, just got a foot of snow last night..haha

I have looked at denon 1911 (same range) but pricey.

For me the onkyo 608 and pioneer 1020 are out of my range a bit I guess on sale maybe.

The yamaha rxv667 is on sale now for 450 from 560 so its a good deal and reviews are great.

I will keep looking but for me because of budget it looks like rxv667...

Time for dinner here will post later tonight with updates lol..
