  I won't recommend without knowing the system it's being used with.  It would be like recommending a Fiio E5 to everyone and having the ortho camp get peeved, and then recommending a HiFiMan EF6 to everyone then wondering why the IEM users are angry.   There are cases when a receiver will do quite fine - medium to small rooms with very easy to drive speakers (sometimes large rooms depending on how easy).  NHT Super Zeros come to mind, where the originals never dipped...
  I'm sorry, but I don't know what system he needs.  I know what's likely, but I don't assume.  As for the 200W per channel comment - some seriously do need it to reach 90dB at ten or so feet.  They are rare and usually "exotic" such as ribbons, but that's why I don't assume regardless.   Equally, the three questions are not unreasonable or confusing.  What speakers does he have, how far does he sit from them, and average listening level (maybe using a SPL comparison...
  It's not trolling - I'm not looking for an emotional reaction but rather making a point.   Quit simply you don't know OP's amp requirements and the capability of the HT receiver you recommend.  There's cases where 200W isn't even enough.  There's speakers out there that only put out 80dB1m/1w, have 4 ohm impedance if not dipping a bit lower, and phase up to 45 degree angles.  These are worst case and not common, but at 10 feet take a massive amount of power (well beyond...
  Which speakers?  What's their nominal impedance, lowest impedance, phase angle, sensitivity, and distance?
  In other words, you don't know - which means you don't know if every speaker will work or not in every situation.
  At what RMS all channels driven into 4 ohms with onset of clipping?
  Power rating is important, as many don't support 4 ohm loads.  Without knowing the speaker impedance over frequency, distance, and desired listening levels it seems like a bad idea to suggest HT receivers like that.  You don't know the speakers so it could clip a bunch and go into overload protection for example.
  Without knowing speakers, listening habits, and distance that seems like a pretty big statement to make . . .
Greetings,   My X-Head seems to have kicked the bucket recently, so I'm looking for a replacement.  If anyone has one they're wanting to part with send me PM.  Thanks.
  True enough.  Still, the majority of people I've had try DH have freaked out.  I took it to a LAN party and a few "special" tracks with things mixed into the back channels.  Running them from DDL into the SU-DH1 produced interesting reactions from everyone that tried it.  Shame I lost my tracks though before I made a full backup :(
