I have a Marantz SR7200 that the On Screen Display has dissapeared on, so I'll be sending it off for service. I can't live without a digital receiver, I have my PC digitaly connected that I use as a jukebox for music, etc.

I need a recommendaton for a cheap digital receiver capable of decoding a PCM signal from my PC that I can use in the interim, I can make it a gift for my girlfriend when I get the Marantz back.

Can anyone recommend the best bang for the buck say up to $300?
