Audio Tube

What is the best way to power a pair of quality stereo speakers?

I plan on running a pair of Paradigm Mini's through my Onkyo home theater receiver.

I keep reading that maybe the home theater receiver is not the best way to power a pair of good speakers.

What is the best way to drive a pair of speakers for the best possible sound reproduction?

I keep hearing the terms tube amp, amp, etc.

How would you do it?

If you power them up via an Onkyo HT receiver, would the difference really not make a difference?

Thanks

Your Onkyo receiver is a good quality "solid state" amp that will work just fine powering those speakers. Which are very good bookshelf speakers, by the way.

Audio Tube amps are the realm of high-end audiophile sound systems. Once apon a time all amps were vacuum tube-driven, until the invention of the solid state transistor.

The debate of tube vs solid state is fierce and can often turn volatile, so I won't even start THAT debate here.

But for your purposes, that Onkyo will do fine for now. If you're looking for a good return on your money for improved sound, start first with a good powered sub-woofer. Those Minis are good speakers, but your missing out on a whole lot of bottom end without a sub.

Look a Paradigm, Hsu, SVS, and Velodine manufacturers.
