There is a possibility certainty but it’s rare and frankly the opposite scenario is much more likely...clipping from underpower. What floor stander and amp are you using?

If your amp does not have protection feature, then there is always a chance anything will burn, all amps should come with safety features hmm.gif

550W RMS per channel? Wow! That's big power, are you using those super bulky power amp? I'm drooling on such powerful monster.

I'm using the AE Aego M, and I'm thinking of getting my first 2.0.
I had the Edifier S2000pro in my mind, but I need to get some opinion from HiFi pro you guys.
Can I build a better sounding set with separate amp and passive speaker?
The Dali Zensor 1 AX Active is sold for RM1.3k more, is it worth the price?

I'm sided a little over to the powered speaker side because I don't feel like messing with separate amp.

Do you use a decent DAC? What is your source? Can consider upgrading the DAC first.
I think your next big upgrade maybe something like KEF LSX.

Yes I have the DAC part covered.
You mean there isn't anything worth buying in between the Aego M and RM5k KEF for active speakers?

The Edifier AirPulse A300 seem to have that and on sale now, wonder how that performs... They're slightly more expensive than the Zensor 1

I see, thanks. Honestly at that price, people wouldn't want to get the Edifier because that brand is associated more with multimedia speaker than HiFi.
Let me ask Starpicker of their opinion since they got a A200 (or something) demo unit there.

Need some advice from sifu around here, I'm planning to setup my first 2.0 system.
Will use it in the hall (14x20), for my parents to watch the news, and I use it for music and some gaming.
Adding more speakers in the future is very unlikely, the most I will add is a subwoofer and a proper cd player.

Shortlisted these few items.
AV receiver = Denon AVR-X550BT , Denon AVR-X1500H
Speakers = KEF Q150 , KEF Q350 , Q Acoustics 3020i
Budget = RM3-5k

1) Is it worth getting a higher price AV receiver even though I know the max I will go is a 2.1 setup ?
Or a more basic AV receiver like Denon AVR-X550BT is already powerful enough for the few speakers I shortlisted ?

2) KEF Q150 vs KEF Q350. Price wise they are both very similar, is it worth to top up a bit for the Q350 ?

3) how much should I budget for my speaker cables ?

KLAV2019 is near the corner, I plan to make a trip to KL and have a look.
For now all I can do is just read review and try to understand more, there's no AV shop nearby my area.

Thanks.

Why no consider floorstander if not adding subwoofer now?
