So i got a real bargain from a neighbour of ours, a set of Yamaha NS-F150 speakers in mint condition for our living room

 

Plan is to get rid of the petty audio our tv manage to produce, and be able to play radio/cd/dvd/blu-ray/mp3(usb style) and insert whatever generic gaming system comes next,

 

For that i need a suitable amplifier.

For now i'm not planning on adding a subwoofer/additional speakers so basicly 2.0 systems would be sufficient (but it all comes down to price of course, if the difference is small, of course i'll invest)

 

Specs of the floor standing speakers

 

Spoiler

 

Been reading around, but i get so confused about all numbers and whatnot. 6 ohm compatible, that i get of course. But after that it's all technobabble.

What output wattage am i looking for? (most mainstream units feature 100 or so watts, if i understood this correctly it's not enough for these puppies)

 

Is it a good idea to invest into a high end reciever with lots of features, or would a basic amp suffice? What impact does brands have on the actual audio in the end?

 

Big thanks if someone could fill me in, or at least point me in some direction (a good forum for stuff like this perhaps? :P)

Maybe its only 2 speakers but imho you gonna need a good amplifier. I suggest a good 5.1 amplifier and you are ready to connect all your equipment. It can support your 2 speakers atm and if you plan to buy a sub  woofer and some other smaller speakers you don't have to upgrade your amplifier.

Well that's true, better buy once and be happy than get something shoddy that won't be compatible with whatever i might want in the future :P

That looks very reasonably priced indeed :)

 

I'll go check some reviews on it :P

(already liking this: Built-In AM/FM Radio. Built-In USB and SD Audio. Saves me the trouble of getting a stereo, just an additional Blu-ray player and the home entertainment set would be complete imo)

 

 

Thanks Baz.

Well you have a lot of choices. But buy 5.1 for sure with same specs with the linked above one. Good luck.
