I figured since Christmas was around the corner and I just got a new Tempest in my room, I could ask my parents for new receiver to replace my old Sony Pro-Logic. Now I need to know which one to ask for. The budget is around $300 CDN. Also, my mom's a travel agent at Sears and gets a discount there, so a brand Sears, so it would make most sense to get a brand they carry (JVC, Sony, Pioneer, Kenwood..). I know my budget doesn't allow for much choice here in Canada, so if anyone could give me any input, I'd appreciate it very much. Thanks, Andrew P.S. My cheap tv only has one composite input, so video switching between DVD and Satellite would be a major plus.
