Hi there, I currently own a Yamaha RX-V650 surround receiver and a Yamaha DVD-S557 DVD player. They are still connected to a pair of small Infinity monitors, since my current room is to small for surround activities...when I bought this kit three years ago I thought investing in the future would be the right thing to do! Now, at the end of the year I'm moving to a "real" house, with a notably larger lvingroom (5 x 5 meters). My plans are to stick with my current kit but the speakers and try to end up with a 5.1 setup in the end. In my quest for the right speaker, I have now come across the Monitor Audio RS6 as my favorite. Fantastic sound, relatively small towers (Girlfriend-friendly) and excellent upgrading possibilities for HT. But... on many forums I've read that they don't go quite well with japanese kit, such as Yamaha. The combination of the two would sound to bright. Since I really, really like the RS6s (not only for sound! I heard them on a stereo Marantz amp, 7000 series), I wonder what I could change in my setup to counter the brightness, without having to get rid of my yammy receiver. in other words, what DVD player (or CD player) or speaker wiring will I have to go for to counter this possible problem. I guess I could spend about 300 € (or 200 quid) on a CD/DVD player on top of the speakers... Can it be done? I hope you have some suggestions.
