Up to recently, I was using a JVC SP-THL1S (http://www.crutchfield.com/S-W86HtatQOO3/p_257THL1/JVC-TH-L1.html) that I bought about 3 years ago. I used this for all my TV Viewing / Movies and Music.
The main unit stopped working and, as I had taken the extended warranty, it seems like I am going to get a store credit for $399.
I am now looking for options to buy a receiver for use with my existing speakers. Would like to buy decent speakers at some stage but definitely not in the foreseeable future...
I had a quick look on the store's website and saw the Pionner VSX-520 for $449 which would be quite cheap with the sotre credit. The question is, would there be any issue to get this receiver working with my existing speakers (see details below)?
Front: Power Handling Capacity: 40W, Impedance: 3 Ohm
Surround: Power Handling Capacity: 40W, Impedance: 3 Ohm
Center: Power Handling Capacity: 100W, Impedance: 4 Ohm
Sub: Power Handling Capacity: 100W, Impedance: 4 Ohm
I also saw that they had the Yamaha RX367 for $579 or the Denon AVR391BK for $577 for which, if much better, I could perhaps justify the extra spending. Any thoughts?
