I'm looking to setup a "home"-theater system (I say "home" because actually it's for a college room, but I can play it as loud as I want other than my roomate no one else is in the vicinity) for under $1,000 definitely, looking around $500-$600 range. For speakers I may go with athena Point 5 MKII, but I don't know about my reciever yet. Does anyone have any good suggestions? One I've been looking at is the Onkyo 501 refurbished for $195. Also Pioneer and Denon. One question I had is the Onkyo is 6.1, but since my system is going to be a 5.1 setup is that going to cause a problem?
