    Ok guys,

    I have been reading and reading and reading and the only thing I now know for sure is that I should buy some stock in Advil! [​IMG]

    I know very little about what the spec numbers mean on receivers but am now faced with the impossible decision of picking ONE!

    I have 6 in ceiling Klipsch RCR-5's reference speakers. I will need a 6.1 receiver for about 75% movies and 25% music. My budget is about $500 and I don't care if it is brand new or GENTLY used. I will be upgrading my DVD player to include DVD Audio capabilities as well as a HD Television (that help me post will come later). Due to the slope of my ceiling I think it is VERY important to be able and adjust each speaker's level independantly. The only other thing I know to care about is the 6.1 processing.

    After MUCH reading it looks like my best bets are between:

    Marantz SR-5300
    Denon AVR-883
    Sony STR-DE985

    Thanks in advance for your help!!

    Jim
