Hello, This is my first post. I am looking for a receiver to replace a Bose 321. I have bought the speakers already. I have Cerwin Veaga VE-5M book shelf speakers with a Velodyne dps-12. So this will start out as a 2.1 system and will be upgraded in the future. My TV is a 57’’ Ultravision CRT 1080i with only component inputs. I will also have a Blu-Ray player Bdps-350. My room size is about 15x20 with standard ceiling height. I love to watch movies and listen to music. My price limit is for the receiver is $350. I have three receivers in mind, the Marantz sr4002 for $339, the Denon Avr- 1508 $220 and The Harman Kardon Avr-154 $254. I want a receiver that will at least fill the room as well or better than the 321. This is supposed to be an upgrade. I would not prefer Sony, Pioneer, or even Yamaha or Onkyo. I know they make good receivers, but I’ve been biased towards these companies for a long time. Other recommendations are welcome.
