View Full Version : Need advice for speakers for Denon 2802

I need an advice which speakers is the best match for my Denon 2802. I need to buy 2 fronts and I've auditioned Paradigm Studio 60 v3 and studio 100 v3. I feel 100 has way deeper bass (well, it wasn't blind auditioning, so maybe it's just psychology :-) ) However, the amplifier in the store was way more powerful than my 90 watts/channel from 2802. Would it be enough for 100 (which I really liked) or buying 100 for 2802 is simply a waste of money and I should go with Studio 60? I'd appreciate any advice.

90wpc should be more than enough. Look at the specs for the 100's. Minimum power is 15wpc!

Some people run Studio 100s with tube amps rated for 3 watts. Your Denon will work just fine.
