I am looking to buy a new receiver this week. The Panasonic SA-HE200 is at the top of the my list. I live in a small town so my options are limited. Panasonic, Onkyo, JVC and Kenwood are my options unless I drive 90 miles. The receiver I buy will mostly be used for music but home theater is important about 60%/40%. The JVC RX-8020VBK has many of the features I am looking for. I do not have the room for the rear center speaker the Panasonic SA-HE200 comes with but it has other features I am looking for. I can get the Panasonic SA-HE200 and the JVC RX-8020VBK for the same price. so what is the better buy? Any opinions on the on the JVC RX-8020VBK will be appreciated.
