Hello
My old amplifier is not bad(YAMAHA DSP-AX630SE) for my old russian style 6.1 loudspeakers...... but now I have some time to regenerate the JBL Studio L Series loudspeakers and subwoofers yamaha.
The current amplifier I have nothing, no power, no low frequencies, only high frequencies and my amplifier heats up quickly.
I'm trying to look for an amplifier from manufacturers like Yamaha, Onkyo, Marantz, Sony, Pioneer, Denon, but it is very difficult to equate them to find the best suited to my existing loudspeakers.
Of course I'm not a specialist in this field only love good quality sound....
Maybe someone could help to choose or advise for what to buy, that I could feel the power of JBL 6.1 loudspeakers. :) :) :)

Dear Donatas,
I didn't understand what is it you're trying to do, do you want to replace your Yamaha receiver with pro audio amps?
If so then what you need is a home theater processor to get a strong enough signal and to decode the audio and send the signal to your favorite amps, much like a receiver but without the amp and radio. So is this what you want to do?

If you just want a recommendation for a new receiver that suits your speakers, I'm afraid your in the wrong place and you should try here:

I mean, my yamaha amplifier is too weak for my JBL L Series loudspeakers. I want you to help me choose from countless other amplifiers that is the most  appropriate to my 6.1 channel speaker system.

Any pro audio amp will easily power your home JBL speakers, even the weakest XLS series amp, as I said before you will need an additional processor such as the ones listed here:
http://hometheaterre...nd-information/
and then, since most pro audio amps are just stereo, you'll need about three amps to power your speakers and one more for the sub (if it's not powered).

Like I said before this forum is oriented towards pro audio gear and not home theater receiver, which is what I think you're looking for and not telling us in that many words. Please let me know if you're looking for pro audio gear OR just a new home theater receiver that will handle your speakers better!!

Yeah, In other words I probably need new home theater receiver since pro audio gear in my opinion will cost too much. Maybe I am wrong? What about powering my system with 3 amps as you said before?

Dear Donatas,
A good quality home theater receiver, that has the newest feature set, will cost in about one third of what a pro audio rig would cost you to run all those speakers. But, a home theater will be less powerful, the question is, is it worth the extra investment for you?

Well if you say that it is the most serious. From Harman/Cardon  categories I have found the AVR 370 maybe better than the 760 model? Maybe you know From harman cardon best of the best???
