Let me start of by stating I know absolutely nothing about Sound. I have done a little research in the past few days, but that's really about as far as it goes. So with any replies please keep it in "English"..thank you. I have a 5.1 Speaker System, and a Yamaha Receiver picked out. I just want to make sure these 2 devices will cope well and the Receiver won't melt. I know the Receiver is a 7.2 system, it's a great deal on Newegg and just want the option for future expandability...for now 5.1 is plenty. Speakers: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049P2000/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&m=A2AX38OWVEV4V2 Receiver: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882115339 I will be using it for: DirecTV, XBOX 360, Blu-Ray / DVD Movies and Uncompressed Music. I do live in an apartment so don't want to be too loud. I just want this sound system for clarity, and being able to hear things I'm not able to hear right now with the built in speakers on my Samsung PN59D8000 Plasma TV. Thank you!
