    magnepan MMG W and MMG C

    I am about to purchase this setup and I am looking for a home theater/receiver to "support" them and I have around $600 to spend. Can it be done and does anyone have suggestions? I am very new to this and am pretty much lost when it comes to what I should look for. Will this system at BestBuy do the job or am I looking in the wrong place?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi,

    I don't think you'll have any problem driving the maggies with that receiver. Remeber that your going to need a sub for your HT system too.

    The receiver you've chosen looks good though you may want to see if there is a J&R store (JandR.com) or higher end store in your area. The RX-V650 is a higher end model and will go for about the same price, if not a little cheaper. You will need a sub to compliment the Maggies so keep that in mind.
