My old Sony receiver has been crapping out the last few months (it 'thumps' and then the back channels quit working.) So, I was looking for a new receiver to buy. I am looking for one that might have RDS as well (but it isn't really important though...i can do without it.) Does anyone know of any good ones? Price is kind of an issue since I have to be moving soon....

i got a refurbished harman kardon avr 630 on h/ks site on ebay for 430 dollars, not a scratch on it. you cant beat that anywhere. it rocks my house. and from what all my friends say it sounds better than what they own at 3 times the price.
