Onkyo TX-NR708 OR Pioneer SC-LX81

Hi all


In need of advice. I own the following:

Onkyo TX-NR708

Pioneer SC-LX81

B&W 686,685,HTM62,ASW608

Monitor Audio Silver RX-6, RSW12,Silver RSFX


I have one simple question which combination of the lot would give me the best sound. I can't try them out as some of the system is in a flat that I rent out. Please advise.

Thanks for all your help

My only advice is get them out of the flat that you rent out - as a landload you are legally obliged to maintain any equipment left for the use of the tenant.

Hence if the reciever blows up, you will be obliged to replace it with a new one.

As for your own listening combination - I would go for the Pioneer with the Monitor Audio's personally, but as with all things audio, it comes down to personal preference.

Thanks Chewy. Just a couple of things, the Pioneer I bought in 2008/2009 and then the Onkyo I bought in 2010. Is there much of a difference in terms of technology and power between the two? Would the Onkyo be powerful enough for the Monitor Audio speakers?

I really appreciate your help. I will take out the system when the contract comes up in October.

Thanks mate

I'd agree with Chewy.
