I'm new to the HT world was exploring last couple of weeks...the decent price made me pull the trigger...with a high end Yamaha RX A3080 9.2 Channel Receiver which retails $1.5 to $2K...also getting a set of premium speakers standing Dolby ATMOS R-625FA makes it a decent deal... my $0.02 Smilie

Any experts...please share your experiences..would love to hear your thoughts. TIA!

Come to realize that having more power and not maximizing it would sound better than less power being maxed out.

I agree. I got the speaker set for $1000 and a Pioneer VSX-LX303 9.2 Channel for $400. It works great so far.

Well the problem with your analogy is that these speakers are very efficient so they don't take much power to perform at their potential.
That extra power you just paid for is wasted because these would play just as well with a receiver half the price, maybe even lower.
IMO if you were concerned about better "sound", I would've recommended to spend all $2200 on a speaker package and buy a $500-$700 receiver, that would give you much better sound than any receiver would.

It's not just power output but SNR as well. A $700 receiver will have more static background noise; fine if you're buying speakers like these, I suppose.

Well that's the thing about sound it's very subjective.
If you can hear that "static background noise" say during watching a movie then yes maybe you might want to go out pay $2K or more to run "speakers like these".
If you can't then "A $700 receiver" will do just fine, just use your own ears and not your eyes to determine that IMO.

These are 100 db sensitive speaker - 1 watt produce 100 db sound level which is insanely loud.

Even the cheapest av recievers have better than 95 db signal to noise ratios,,, typical background noise in a room is 65 db. If your hearing static I seriously recommend seeing an audiologist.

That's not how amplification works. When in use, you will hear a slight hissing/distortion sound. A good receiver like this one will not have as much hissing when raising the volume. When the music/dialog goes silent, those are the times you will notice it.

I'm completely uninformed when it comes to speakers. How would this subjectively compare to the Polk bundle that I've seen go for $3200 here? https://www.adorama.com/pklsim707bk3.html?
I know people suggest for you to listen to them if you can, etc. I just want to know if it's a big step up comparatively. I already have a monolith 10 sub and was looking to get new speakers in the distant future.
