I've just pulled the trigger on a pair of KEF LS50's and I'm so excited for them to arrive but I'm struggling with what receiver to pair them up with.\n\nTo give a little background on myself in regards to my experience with audio in general, I should let everyone know that I don't really have any hah. I feel like I'm jumping straight into the deep end with these LS50s and I love it! My problem is after doing some research on receivers and amps for these speakers I feel the one I purchased yesterday just isn't good enough to do these speakers justice for me as many claim they need a lot of power (more than specified on their specs list). I bought a Denon x1400h but still have time to return it for my money back and opt for a slightly higher model or brand of receiver. So far the choices I've narrowed down to are a Denon x3400h as it seems to have great reviews and more power capabilities than its lesser model. In the other corner of the ring I'm looking at a Yamaha RX A780 both seem to have very similar features so I can't come up with a reason to go for one over the other. \n\nThough the LS50's are designed as a stereo pair and meant for that purpose (from what I've been told at audio shops) I would like to keep my options open with a receiver capable of accommodating a surround system in the future should I change my course. I also like all the features that come with them like apps and what not. The receivers are within of each other and pretty much right where I want to be price wise as I don't want to spend any more than I already have right now. Some guidance on this decision would be so helpful. Perhaps people have recent experience with these brands and could help nudge me one way or the other.
