    I have just got a pair of Paradigm active speakers and I'm in need of a receiver that has pre-outs so I can finally put these babie to work! I'm looking for a CHEAP reciever, 5-channel, DD, DTS.. nothing fancy. I'm gonna use this as a stopgap measure until the receiver/pre-pro that has all the features I want finally comes out, which won't be for many months probably. Any recommendations?

    Vince: how much is cheap to you? You can get a new Sherwood Newcastle AVP-9080r 5.1 preamp/pro for less than $400 nowadays. I don't think that I could recommend off hand any receiver with preouts that would match that performance under that price.

    Vince, Pioneer has a receiver VSX d850s that I bought at London Drugs for $250US. It has pre outs and can do DD EX and DTS ES. Not that user friendly but does the job. I am presently using it with external amps.

    Vince,

    If you want it to switch video, you should be able to

    pick up a Yamaha HTR-5280 for under 500 USD. It also has

    a nice center channel equalizer.

    I am also looking for a CHEAP receiver with pre-out. How about Denon avr-1602? You can get one at buydig.com with $299. Do not know the exact shipping price. If go with Fedex saver(7-10 days), you will get it around $330. Not a bad deal.

    Anybody knows other places to buy with cheap price?

    I don't have a great suggestion (sorry [​IMG]), but thought I'd point out that on the denon 1602, I don't think it has pre-outs for more than a sub. (also, the 1802 doesn't include surround pre-outs).

    The Knewood VR-510 has preouts on all channels and can be had for $400 online. I think it is also the cheapest receiver with THX cert.

    THX SELECT not full THX cert. Meaning it has only certain features, not that it meets all requirements.
    Marantz SR5200 has pre-out and excellent music capability. Right around $400.

    Look at the closeout HK avr210. It can be had for probably around 299 or maybe less online. It has preouts and looks nice, too..

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'll look into the kenwood, h/k and the yammie. I wonder which ones of the newly released yammie line has preouts..
