    Hi I am moving into my house and getting direct tv with high def and a dvr. I also want to hook up the 4 celling speakers the house comes with and my playstation2. What kind of receiver do I need? I want to get am/fm radio and run the tv sound through it. Is 80 watts going to be enough or do I need more? I don't like to blast the music to where the neighbors can hear. Thanks.

    A decent 7 channel receiver should do fine for listening at normal levels. Anything from Denon, Yamaha, Onkyo around the $700 price range will supply enough power and have the hookups you'll need. For movies, I'd recommend a sub...

    I think you get higher wattage the better it is.
