Need some help on comparing amplifiers/receivers.



Hi you all!!!

First let me introduce myself,
I'm Sander from the netherlands and i'm a newbie on the field of home cinema.

In the end of 2002 we (my girlfriend and I) started building our own home cinema
(7 X 3.20 mtrs) .From this forum i got a lot of info on screen, projector etc. (foto's will follow soon)

Now the end of the rebuilding is near i had to start looking for a good amp/receiver. On the forum i found out i minimally wanted to have a receiver with DD DTS & PL2.

Going to have a look at te other spects of receivers ...I LOST TRACK.....!!!!!!

So here is the question(s):
- Should i have EX & ES even if i dont have a 6th speaker?
- Does 96kHZ Vs. 192kHZ make much of a difference?
- When i have 8 Ohm speakers does the amp has to be 8 as well?
- Is it correct that THX isn't an option if the room is to small?
- The speakers i use are from sony (SA-VE525) and are 120 W/ch maximumpower input. Can i use a contineous120 W/ch amp, or should i go for 80W/ch?
- The last question i have is to give your opineon for the machines i have in mind at the moment

Denon AVR-2802
Onkyo TX-SR600
Yamaha RX-V630
Sony STR-DB1080QS

All tips on a good amp (upto 800 euro/dollar) are welcome too!!!!

Hope to get some help from you all!!!!!!!
