So I am looking at receivers on ac4l.com (www.accessories4less.com) and I have to say that I have very little idea as to what I am looking at or for. I am basically looking at every receiver on the site that is $200 or less but I guess I have no idea which is best for me. Here's what I have... http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-FS51-LR-Floorstanding-Loudspeakers-Black/dp/B004H1M4NO http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/Speakers/Home+Theater+Speakers/SP-C21 http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/Speakers/Home+Theater+Speakers/SW-8 I will be getting the matching pioneer bookshelf speakers eventually. But what receiver would be best for these speakers. Sure it is easy for my to know the 100 W/ch is better than 80 W/ch. But I look at other things like RMS (I believe that is what it is called) or 20Hz to 20KHz and I feel lost. All the receivers on ac4l.com seem pretty good, or at least will work for me but I have little idea as to what separates them from one another. I am looking at the SHERWOOD R-772 Newcastle 7.1 Surround Receiver because it will give me the option to eventually go to 7.1 surround sound. This is currently $200 on the site but everything that is less money seem like it would be serviceable as well plus save me money of course. Heres what I need from the receiver... 2 HDMI inputs at least (xbox and blu ray player) I believe and optical digital audio input for my TV which doesn't have and HDMI output but does have and optical digital output (The TV is a LG 50 inch 720p plasma) And of course it needs to be able to adequately power the speakers I have. So I guess my question is am I even in the ball park of the right receivers I should be looking at? If so, which entry level one would you suggest?
