    I want to buy a receiver for the "heart" of my entertainment system, but also want to buy speakers so I can have 6.1 surround. I'm not exacttly sure if you could just hook up any speakers to the receiver or are there certain ones?

    Thanks for the help

    You can hook up any sort of speaker provided it has the right impedance a power rating as what you are running for an amp.
    However if it is film you after then there are specific A/V speakers combared to just stereo speakers.
    The differnce is A/V speakers are very directional and more punchy on the bass compared to stereo.
    You do have exceptions to the rule like KEF who try to produce speakers that do both Stereo and A/V.

    I was thinking about getting the Sony 600W 6.1-Ch. A/V Receiver Model: STRDE597 and with the KLH 7-Piece Home Theater Speaker System w/2-Way Satellites & 50W Bandpass Subwoofer but im not sure if its any good or worth it? Any input?

    Also, do you guys know anything about the harman kardon avr135
