I read that is best to use the same speakers all around the room, if the iq5s are to big, I probably look for smaller speakers from the same brand and model if possible; combining different brands is okay (specially for surrounds) ...but I prefer to have all speakers from same brand at least :bigsmile:.

The Onkyo would do a great job. I find that Onkyo's are very flat they add little color to the sound. Yamaha's are a bit warm (not that that is a problem) its just what I hear as I have both Onkyo and Yamaha.

Re: i need a new reciver

If it were me, I'd look at the Onkyo 805 rather than the 906. I don't think you're going to get that much more with the 906 and you'll save a few benjamins with the 805.

I think anything in the same price range by Denon and Yamaha would do well too. Onkyo does seem to offer the best features for the price right now though.

I don't have anything to back it up, but I've heard that Pioneer has som realibity issues and may be overpriced for what you're getting.

as for the speakers, I think your center is a good choice -- a bookshelf from the same line I think would be even better. As for the surrounds, I really believe that the ideal is to get the same speaker for all the speaker in your system. Barring that, speakers from the same product line is the next best in my opinion. Given that, I'd probably steer away from a DefTech speaker as a general rule.

But all that is just my opinion.

Either receiver will do fine, 110 watts is plenty of power. Enjoy.

I always say the more power the better but any of the receivers you have listed above will do you just fine. How large is your room?

110 watts is more then enough power. You will never use even that much unless you want to get evicted by your landlord for being to loud.

The difference between 130 and 140 watts is imperceptable, both in output and quality of output. There's more to quality than the amount of watts. Also, wattage numbers have become a marketing ploy. The numbers are rarely put in context. For instance, I have an NAD T762 that they rate @80watts, but others would probably rate as 120 watts. I tried a digital amp (Panosonic), rated with half again as much power. The NAD sounds much, much better.
