Re: A good receiver for Harman Kardon HKTS 60?

I am pretty sure I will be buying Infinity TSS-1200 total speaker solution set. The price on Amazon is hard to pass up for me. It was originally a debate between the HKTS 60QB for an extra $300, but with a more limited budget I will be sticking with the TSS-1200. I really am digging Pioneer Elite Receivers and would probably buy one, but am new at home theatre systems and matching the right power with the right receiver that will bring out the best possible quality from the speakers and sub. I know that Yamaha and Denon and Onkyo are other great receiver brands but just the styling and name of Pioneer Elite I am liking the most. Looks matter a lot to my significant other and me. Any suggestions?

Hello,
Pioneer makes excellent AVR's and I too am a big fan of their Industrial Design. I would also look at last years Models as the HDMI spec (1.4) has not changed and you should be able to get more AVR for your money.
Cheers,
JJ

Re: A good receiver for Harman Kardon HKTS 60?

Hey guys,

My first post here. I've made my decision to get the HKTS 60 after weeks of thinking. It looks great and got really good reviews. It's a must buy as my first home theater system.

I've also been looking into getting a receiver that matches the systems quality. The Denon AVR-1912 looks good and seems to be a good option for me, with the 3D, network options etcetera. My problem is I'm no technical genious and I can't figure out what all the specs means and how they compares to each other.
Anyone with a bit more knowledge who can tell me if the 1912 will do the HKTS 60 justice? I live in an apartment and most of the time I'm not able to play the system (mostly music, but also film) at the higher volumes. I need a receiver that can bring out the great sound from the HKTS 60 at lower volume levels. I'm no audiophile and I can't really hear what's good and what's bad, to be honest, but since I'm buying this system I would like it to sound as good as possible when I'm using it. My budget is at 750 USD.

Re: A good receiver for Harman Kardon HKTS 60?

Thanks to all of you for a very usefull thread about HKTS 60's.
Got one question (hope some of you can answer): I've got a Yamaha RX-V367 reciever (not the best I know but it does have surround) and was thinking of buying a set of HKTS 20 or HKTS 30. But all the talk about HKTS 60 really got me thinking.
Is there any chance my reciver can take advantage of the HKTS 60, or is it complete overkill?
(I'm not an audiophile but I like listening to music and enjoy good movies.)
