    Hello Guyz

    I have been shopping around and for a decent AVR and made up my mind that one of the new Denon AVR1906 or AVR2106 is best for me.

    The 1906 delivers 115W/channel on 6ohms and 80W/channel on 8ohms
    The 2106 delivers 125W/channel on 6ohms and 90W/channel on 8ohms

    I dont want large speakers but its very difficult to find small satellite speakers with large wattage capacity of more than 100W!! This guy at a local store offered me the new Denon speakers which are very nice and having a capacity of 100W on 6ohms. He told me they fit the bill perfectly with the AVR1906. Actually they sound very good. I am waiting for the demo dvd I bought from ebay to go to this guy and make some tests.

    What do you think guyz??? :confused:

    Cheers :D

    Relax! Neither of the Denons actually produce anywhere near the quoted 110w power - Marketing-speak. ;)

    Any decent sub/sat setup will work fine with 'em. :)

    If they get 5x50w be happy!!!

    Forget speaker watts, get attention to efficiency and impedance...

    Yup, neither of those amps produce anything like that figure, it is indeed a max power output.. you should look at the RMS output - which is more likely to be about 40 watts.

    Be more concerned with the quality of the signal and the impedance load it can handle.

    For instance my Naim amp has a whopping 30 watts RMS output... and it goes one hell of a lot louder than my old Arcam with 75 watts RMS.
