Message 1 of 11 Feb 13, Scutt Auditioning. I'm just wondering if it is too old to power the new Jensen's? Am i still going to get nice sound?
Since the amp is like 15yrs old.. Message 2 of 11 Feb 13, Bill Kane Screenwriter. Message 3 of 11 Feb 13, Message 4 of 11 Feb 13, This site doesn't list an RX Anyway, the RX-V is 75 watts per channel for 5 channels.
You would get 75 watts output to each Jensen hooking up as stereo. Should handle it if you dont blast at ear-splitting levels! Is this all you are going to do -- set up a stereo for music system?
Never hook-up a DVD player for movie surround sound? Message 5 of 11 Feb 13, Message 6 of 11 Feb 13, Message 7 of 11 Feb 13, Where did you get that watt specification? If that was watts per channel stereo this would be one heavy amplifier like lbs.
Message 8 of 11 Feb 13, I just assumed it was watts per channel because it said watts on the back of it Message 9 of 11 Feb 14, James, the plate of ther rear of the Yamaha and nearly all appliances tells you the amount of electrical power it uses at some peak or sustained level chosen by the maker for the test.
This older RX likely is rated in the 45 watts to 60 watt range per channel for stereo output.
I'd look for a less old receiver and one with more audio output power, like 75 or 80W. Yamaha still is a good one here for used I'll ask again: Is stereo music playing the only thing you are going to use this receiver for?
Never Dolby 5. Message 10 of 11 Feb 14, Wayne A.

Pflughaupt Moderator. James, What you have is a vintage Yamaha receiver , not amplifier. Your RX is circa It was the bottom-of-the-line offering for the year, and was rated at 50 watts per channel 8 ohms great estimate there, Bill!
Regards, Wayne A. Message 11 of 11 Feb 15, Ok thanks very much guys!
I will look for a newer amp. And Bill, I will in the future jave surround..
