    I'm a newbie. I got a Denon AVR-X250BT home theatre amp.
    This is what's written on the Denon catalogue: The AVR-X250BT AV receiver powers quality home theater at 130W per channel.

    However on close inspection, it says
    Number of Poweramps: 5
    Power Output (8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% 2ch Drive): 70 W
    Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 0.7% 2ch Drive): 90 W
    Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 1% 1ch Drive): 130 W

    I've shortlisted two floorstanding speakers:
    1) Pioneer SP-FS51
    Frequency Range 45 Hz-20 kHz
    Nominal Impedance 6 Ohms
    Sensitivity (2.83 V) 87 dB
    Maximum Input Power 130 W
    Crossover Frequency 2.5 kHz
    Tweeter 1”

    2) Yamaha NS-F51
    Minimum Frequency Response 43 Hz
    Crossover Type 2-way
    Sensitivity 89 dB
    RMS Output Power 80 W
    Impedance 6 Ohm
    Maximum Frequency Response 26 kHz
    Driver Type 25.40 mm Soft Dome Tweeter
    Speaker Configuration 3.0
    PMPO Output Power 240 W

    I'm confused. What am I supposed to see in a speaker? Ohms? Watts? Sensitivity? Can anyone help me out? Also, which would you choose from the two I've listed? Thank you.
