New user to this forum and looking to get the 990 processor. I run 5.1 in my theater, so would likely look to get the 7500 (or 7700 if I decide I want two additional channels for some reason). My speakers are Onix Reference 1 bookshelf speakers (fronts and rears), Onix Reference 100 center. I run them small. Subs are dual SVS 20-39PC+ (built-in amplifiers). Room is 30 by 18 by 12 (height). Since I run the speakers small and they are not full range anyway, any thoughts on whether 125W would be sufficient (including for dynamic range)?

I am not in a particular hurry and can wait until the 7500 or 7700 are released (so that i could have a matching set to the 990), but the trade-in program sure is easy enough to start playing with Outlaw gear now...

BTW - this is replacing a Denon 3803, which has done just fine in the room but has developed all sorts of issues now and needs to be repaired...I've been thinking about upgrading it for some time, and the 990 processor is just what I was looking for.

Thanks in advance.

Both the Ref 1 and the Ref 100 center are 4 ohm speakers, so the 7125 would actually be giving you more along the lines of 190 watts. Factor in the dual subs and associated crossover arrangement, and the 7125 would be a pretty promising candidate for them.
