It's not as bad as it sounds. :wink: I recently started working at Best Buy, and of course I'm in home theater. Since I get a huge discount, it would be stupid to buy my equipment somewhere else. I just want a few opinions as to what you guys would choose and why based on my limited options. As far as a receiver, I'm looking at either a Kenwood vr-7070 or a Yamaha HTR-5660. The kenwood is thx certified, but would that alone put it above the yamaha on your list? For my mains I'm looking at a pair of jbl n38-II's, or some klipsch SF-2's. I will be getting the matching center and rears for either set. What do u guys think? Any feedback and opinions would be great.
