I am currently planning a DOWNGRADE for my stereo system, selling off my current setup for something smaller and more aesthetically pleasing. I work at Circuit City so I can purchase everything they sell at cost. I need to choose a receiver which for me is in the $200-400 range, most likely to go with Energy Take speakers (just two for now, and maybe more in the future). I suppose my top choices are the: H/K AVR-125 H/K AVR-225 Similar Onkyo brands Similar Pioneer brands What should I go with? I'm guessing people will say the H/K, especially when I tell them that I care about music first. If so, how much of a step up is the 225 over the 125, especially given the speakers I am considering? Thanks for any help here.
