Denon AVR-X3200W with TSi Speakers

I am about to purchase a Denon AVR-X3200W to be used with my TSi 500 fronts, CS20 Centre, TSi 200 Sides, OWM3 backs and PSW125 Sub, any problems with that combination? Can it damage the speakers?

    No, but you can.

    The receiver is fine for powering what you have all though not the most powerful for powering 7 speakers. Just keep the volume at reasonable levels and listen carefully when you feel like cranking it up. If the music starts to sound congested, rough around the edges, back off the volume dial.

    The specs for that AVR show 105wpc in stereo mode. I have no idea what that will
    dilute down to with the additional speakers you have, but a good rule of thumb is to keep the volume knob under 1 o'clock (well, OK, for Denon that would mean no louder than what -10db will achieve?)
    Assuming you will hook that sub up with the Subwoofer Out, so that eliminates that from being in the mix. Damage will only occur if the speakers are overdriven, and a distorted signal is sent to them.

    If you feel you are not getting all you can from those speakers, at least with that model Denon you have preouts, and can add a separate amp down the road.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    This set up will mostly be used for Blu Ray movies, very little music, any difference?

    You should be fine, pay attention to the couple of things @tonyb mentioned and you'll be fine.

    As I said, if you feel you're not getting the full effects, maybe try adding a separate amp to power the fronts to start with. My rig is comparable to yours, and at -20db I never feel like I'm missing anything.

    +1 on the manual, even though Denon has made many improvements in their GUI menus (thank G*d!). They finally made input/output selections much easier, also much simpler to adjust just about everything.
    Denons' user manuals had a pretty steep learning curve even a few years ago.

    Thanks all for the comments, I pick it up today and will see how it goes. Has to be an improvement over my present Denon AVR-1913.

    One more question, Dolby Atmos requires special (so they say) Dolby Atmos speakers, does the DTS X system require other special speakers or will the present ones do?
  • tonybtonyb Posts: 31,440
    Present ones will do....and yeah, should be a pretty good upgrade from the older Denon.
