    The receiver wouldn't be at the top of my list, but for $50, you can't go wrong! You picked excellent price/performance pieces to compliment it. Should make for a nice little system.

    The receiver is a pre-dolby digital unit with only 2 speaker outputs. While it might make a nice receiver for a music-only bedroom system, it wont take advantage of those speakers.
    (It IS hard to tell what the receiver will do. It talks about X5 and compatible with DVD Audio, but clearly states "Creates dramatic home Theater sound with just 2 front speakers" and "2 Main speaker terminals")
    I have to say, that Velodyne is several leagues out-of-line with the others. And I'm afraid it wont make friends with your apartment neighbors. [​IMG]
    What do you HAVE and what are you going to buy?
    You can get a nice Kenwood HTB-505 or 509 system for under $600 that has all 5 speakers, self-powered sub, a receiver with all the bells/connections and the 509 system has a multi-disk DVD/CD player included.

    No the reciever has fron/rear and center speaker outputs. It has a special DSP setting that will create a "surround sound like" experienceusing stereo. But it does have 5 chan speaker outputs and and a sub pre out.

    I got luck with the Vel since i got it from work on a permanant loan basis.
