Panasonic & Onkyo compatibility


Active Member
Good morning all.

I'm usually pretty good when it comes to knowledge on audio and visual equipment but I'm a bit stuck with the question below:

What is the compatibility like with Panasonic & Onkyo equipment?

The reason I ask, is because I am quite interested in picking up an Onkyo AV Receiver because of all the great things I've heard about them, but I don't want to have to go out and spend a fortune on decent speakers for it as well. So would it be possible to use my speakers from my Panasonic BT-200 Home Theater System along with the Onkyo Receiver?

Any helpful input on this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

What is the impedance of the speakers? Anything under 4 ohms should not be used with an AV reciever as they will put too much load on the reciever and could damage it. This is especially true for Onkyo which have a reputation of running hot anyway. Also is the sub active or passive? All AV reciever need an active sub to work.
In general speakers from all in one systems are not suitable for use with an AV reciever.
