What speakers do you have? If you need to crank it to around 125watts you need to look at some better speakers or your hearing is going. I have a 125wt per channel reciever (yamaha) I never crank it past 25%, I have JBL speakers.
I'm looking to purchase a new A/V Receiver. I wanted one with more modern inputs/outputs (specifically several HDMI inputs/outputs). I currently have a Sony STR_V555ES Amp I bought 10 years ago that has been rock solid. However, it only has component output and I 'm looking to purchase a new LCD/LED/Plasma TV for our Home Theater room. I love the power and sound from the Sony, but when I purchased it then, it was about $1200. I'm hoping to NOT spend that again this time, but I want the same power levels (~120W at .05% THD). I was looking at some Yamahas and Denons, but wanted to get your thoughts. Thanks in advance for any input you can provide.
