please help me make up my mind about purchasing one of these speakers :

Edifier S1000MKII or Edifier S350DB

edifier s1000mkii is a 2.0 apparently hi-res but I don’t know how true that is! it also got 5.0 Bluetooth!

Edifier S350DB is a 2.1 & got a subwoofer but it’s not hi-res and the Bluetooth ver is 4.1

i can purchase S1000 for $300 and S350 for $200 which is a lot cheaper than MSRP!

the only thing that’s tempting me to go with S1000 is the Hi-Res feature! I have a lot of FLAC files on my PC but I’ve never had a hi-res system to enjoy them. there’s also a high possibility that ill purchase a DAC in the future.

I’ve been using AIWA CX-JTV8 for around 17 years but unfortunately, the receiver died the other day. here’s a pic of the system : AIWA CX-JTV8 PICTURE

now I’ve been looking to buy a new receiver and find YAMAHA – R-N303 to fit my budget but the problem is that I’m not sure if it’s going to support the speakers or not !

I’ve checked the user manual of my speakers and I find the following info :

>Front Speaker: 6 ohms

Surround Speaker: 8 ohms

speakers manual: https://servlib.com/sony/aud…

and about the old receiver itself :

>Power output

Rated: 144 W + 144 W (6 ohms,
T.H.D. 1 %, 1 kHz)

Reference: 180 W + 180 W (6 ohms,
T.H.D. 10 %, 1 kHz)

Front and Surround:

250 W + 110 W (Front Speaker: 6
ohms, Surround Speaker: 8 ohms,
T.H.D. 10 %, 1 kHz/DIN AUDIO)

receivers manual: https://servlib.com/sony/aud…

YAMAHA – R-N303 specs :

>Minimum RMS Output Power : 100 W + 100 W (8 ohms, 40 Hz-20 kHz, 0.2% THD)
>Maximum Power (4 ohms, 1kHz, 0.7% THD, for Europe) : 115 W + 115 W
>Maximum Power(8 ohms, 1 kHz, 10% THD) : 140 W + 140 W
>High Dynamic Power/Channel (8/6/4/2 ohms) : 125 / 150 / 165 / 180 W

R-N303 Page link : https://usa.yamaha.com/prod…

I really don’t understand about the wattage and output power! I guess my speakers need more power than the receiver that I’m trying to buy?

I also have the option to buy a pair of Edifier-S1000MKII , but I won’t be able to use the speakers that I already have and they sound amazing imo

YAMAHA A-S301 is another option but I don’t think it’s that different from R-N303

so what do you guys think I should do?

thanks in advance.

Yes. These speakers are called active speakers, or studio monitors. Jbl has the 305p, 306p and 308p, all of which are widely liked. There are even some companies that add a remote to control the volume from the sitting position. The two that come to mind are Edifier, and swan. Look at online reviews and take the plunge lol. links below.

JBL are priced each speaker, so if you buy one you get 1 speaker, not a set. No remote, but great bass. Almost don’t need a subwoofer with these
