OK here is what I've got.
Pioneer VSX 84TXSi (145 wpc) for the receiver, and it will power the new 8 ohm Polk Audio CSiA6 center, FXi A6 Rears and FXiA4 surrounds.
Mains are Polk Audio SDA 2 speakers which are 5 OHM, that I've had since the 80's.
I'll be using the main pre outs on the 84TXSi to feed the power amp.
I've been looking at the Carver TFM amps, in particular the TFM-35X and the TFM-45. After reading a lot of posts I'm leaning toward the TFM-45. I'd appreciate some input here from anyone, but especially anyone who might be using the Polk SDA 2 speakers. What are your thoughts and/or recommendations on a great Carver amp that I can use both for music and HT with my setup?
Thanks in advance,
