What is a good reciever that has Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 along with plenty of outlets for speakers, DVD player, VCR, satellite, etc...and is less or around the $160 mark?

I want to replace my Dolby Pro-Logic reciever so I can get DTS with my DVD player. I'd also like to finally hear my DD 5.1 DVD's in true 5.1 sound. (After all, I just bought new speakers!)

P.S.: There's no P.S.

I picked up a Sony STR-DE475 for my bedroom for $159 at a local electronics store.

Because there are already some responses I'll leave this thread. Otherwise I would have deleted it outright because of the teaser-type header. Please be more descriptive in future posts. You'll be rewarded with more hits. With all the messages on this Forum I think many members skip the ambiguous ones.

Thanks for your understanding.
