Re: A good receiver for Harman Kardon HKTS 60?

Hey I picked up the yamaha rxv667 last night on sale here for $429.99!!!

It's a 90w 7.2 reciever.

Can anyone shed some light if this reciever would be a good fit for the HKTS 60 speakers from Harmon Kardon?

The speakers are reated 10w - 120W but im not sure how that all factors in with a 90w amp.

Does this amp have enough power for these speakers?

Thanks,

Hey. Take a look at these two reviews, they are in swedish, but use google translate.

http://www.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?o=615515

if u still dont understand them, ill translate it for u. They are not using Yamaha 667, but 767. However i think u will get an idea of how they will sound like

Hey i translated those reviews. thanks...

Nothing but good reviews for the hkts60.

I also looked into the 767 which is very similar to my 667 a bit more - 95 instead of 90 and a couple of extra hdmi ports.

At the price of 429.99can i will keep it.

I think I am all done researching and giong to order my hkts60 speakers this weekend!!!!

Do you know when you are getting your onkyo?

Hey. Thanks for letting me notis. Got my Onkyo know, and dude, let me tell u, it sounds AWSOME. Could not be happier with the speakers now. Cant belive the difference from the speakers running them through Onkyo and NOT Sony. Its so clear and crisp, wow. I thought they sounded good after turning the bass boost off running them trough sony, but now...yeah, im just so happy. I will with out a doubt recomend the HKTS 60 to you

Great to hear!!!!!

I will be ordering the speakers today and it will take a few weeks to get them.

I have my yamaha and I am very happy with it. The 608 goes for 600 here but i was able to get the 667 for 429 so I will stick with the 667 and i have read they are similar.

Can't wait to here these speakers...

Hey When are u geting ur speakers? Are they ordered? One thing ive noticed, HK say nothing about the crossover point between satelites and sub. Audyssey sets mine to 100 and sometimes to 120 hz, but i cant really hear the difference, both sounds good. Im curious of what your Yamaha receiver will choose

Hey matt, so after listening to them for a while are the 60's much better then the 20's?

Worth double the price?

Hey. I really cant say, didnt have the chance to try the HKTS 20 on the Onkyo. But the HKTS 60 sounds very good. Even music is good. However, DO NOT think it can componsate for large floor speakers, no small system will or can. But this might be as close as you can get.
