    Any opinions. Thinking about ditching 6.1 and just getting a high powered, good quality sounding receiver.

    I have the Outlaw and really like it, especially if you want 5.1.

    Don't feel bad Don, I broke my arm riding my 400ex. Had to type for a whole month, and write with my other hand.

    I have the Yamaha rx-v620 and it has really good sound. It has been replaced by the rx-v630. It runs around $499, but can be found on eBay for around $250 used.

    I'll throw in a vote for the H/K AVR-520. I think jandr.com and onecall.com still have it for $500. You'd be hard pressed to beat it for clean 5.1 power at $500.
