    Anyone have good experiences? I'm looking to upgrade from the home-theatre-in-a-box, and was looking at recievers in the 300-400 price range. I have a 40.00 gift certificate to crutcfield, and 75.00 to best buy, but before I buy anything, I was wondering on experiences, reccomendations for one.

    local public library should have consumer reports, or consumer digest...

    thats where i would look, then when you figure which ones you like based on the reports, then ask for personal experiences for those models...

    my old man did this about 5 years back and went with onkyo...

    wrong forum.


    Onkyo. nuff said.

    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-VA35ER53LQP/c...20&I=580TXS603B

    nice good-but-not-thebest receiver. full-rated watts > lamedick watts. i love my receiver.

    its awesome if you use fiber optic cabling from your dvd player too-- it will adjust the dts settings based on whats on the disk.

    ie, the previews are Dialog +2

    anything listed as 1000 watts that isn't pro club gear is a waste of money. seriously.



    Total output: 1000 watts (speakers: 167W x 5, 1kHz, 10% THD; subwoofer: 167W @ 100Hz, 10% THD)


    they rate it based on what the speakers can hold... which is bullshit.

    you have NO idea what the amp is capable of.

    HDMI Inputs No
    DVI Inputs No
    Digital Input 2 coaxial, 1 optical
    Stereo Audio Inputs/Outputs 3/1
    S-Video Inputs/Outputs 0/1
    Component Video Inputs No
    Component Video Outputs 1
    HDMI Outputs No
    DVI Outputs No



    you get what you pay for...

    I'm all about the onkyo as well. When I get a house next year I'll definitely be buying the S701 system.

    My father has the Yamaha RX V2500 7.1 Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver . It is bad ass. Ian has seen it hooked to his plasma tv :) This reciever is the best quality i have seen in someone's home stereo.
