Got a cheap old receiver collecting dust since you upgraded? I'm looking to spend under $100 shipped (looking at $50-75 options on craigslist). Here is what I ideally want:

* Dolby Digital (PLII would be a big plus!)
* Three digital inputs
* S-Video Switching (not a necessity, but a desire!)

That's about it. I need to move some equipment around. HTIB receivers are welcome!

Forget it!!! I found a Pioneer 509 DD/DTS receiver on craigslist for $40, so I'm going to upgrade my bedroom receiver from a 11 year old model to an 8 year old model ha ha. The 18 year old prologic dinosaur which died will go out to pasture.

Phil,

I had a few on Craigslist. If the 509 doesn't work out, give me a shout. I have a minty H/K AVR-310 with remote and manual. My price range is more towards your "shipped" price, but the receiver is most excellent.

I'm local - Northern Va.
