    Hi
    My name is Hari.
    I recently brought one Denon AVC-A1SRA.
    I am playing it with KEF Reference Front Channel Series 205.
    For rear I brought one set of KEF Q11s. I burnt all my money.
    I need set up a Sub, Center and Surround A, and surrount rear b.

    Can somebody suggest me if B&W center can match?

    What is Timbre Matching?
    How do I do?

    Sometimes I feel this Amp (275W per channel) is insufficient to drive
    my KEF 205. Should I put a Seperate Power Amp?

    I am using Onkyo 757 (THX certified DVD player)

    Thanks in Advance,
    Hari.

    Hi Hari
    Welcome to the forums.
    Right timbre matching means that the front three speakers should all sound the same so when sound pans the front three speakers you cant detect a tonal change, which when using a different make centre can do,The surrounds at the back arnt subject to this rule with movies but can alter the sound when using sacd or dvda music discs.What is your budget for a subwoofer, take a look at the sub threads iam sure you will find a good sub to go with your system.
    Cheers Gonzo. :)

    Agree with gonzo - stick with one brand for at least the fronts!

    Thank you very much Gonzo.

    For the Sub, I am planning to go for THX certified as I need variable
    frequency of 125khz and above. When I am playing THX software,
    sub sucks if it is not variable freq.

    For center channle howz KEF Reference 204C?

    Also I am confused from tech specs of KEF Reference 205 it says Max
    handling is RMS 300W.

    Technician told me that my AMP can handle only 275W maximum so you may
    want to consider buying one Power AMP to drive only front Channels.

    I don't know if what he says is true.

    I always thought speaker should not be blown off so I need more power
    handling in speakers.

    Please advise me on this.

    thank you very much in advance!

    Hi
    In some respects what he is saying is true you can never have to much power as more head room with the amp will give you better overall quality and control over your speakers.If you can try and get the dealer to let you take the power amp home then you will be certain of any improvements if any before parting with your cash.
    Cheers Gonzo. :)
