input on this receiver/speaker combination

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Tax returns are coming up & my next purchase will be a stereo receiver & speakers. I plan on using it for my home theater in conjunction with my tv as well as with my pc.

I'm not a savvy audiophile but being a musician sound is definitely important to me. I've been doing a little research & I think I've found something that can compromise cost vs quality for me. Any input from those more versed would be great

the receiver I'm looking at is this

and the speakers are these http://www.fluance.com/fluan5speaks.html

okay fist nice choice in system i definitely recommend it since you are an artist
i check it out (the receiver link doesn't work but i googled it) the speakers are definitely the right power range for you receiver, however the speakers said they can handle 160 watts but the output of your system is 110 watts but no worrys that way you can't blow your speakers. Next off double check to see you have the cables to hook up pc to receiver such as optical audio and coaxial are most standard. Set up for these systems can be intimidating so dont fret!! One huge tip for set up: follow the colors and follow where the audio and video is going to avoid blowing your system, Ex: every where you plug a wire into the receiver, it should say on the receiver "_____ IN" and that wire should have come from somewhere like you TV marked "_____ Out" those blanks being audio video etc. Same rule applies when connection the receiver to other things. I have a similar set up to yours and it took more that four hours to set up so be patient. hope i helped pm me if you have any difficulties with setup.
