im looking into getting myself a new stereo receiver. i dont want DD or DTS or none of that crap, im just gonna use this for music, 2 channel stereo operation. ive been recommended this receiver by a few on this board and ive been checking it out, it looks like i might be happy with it. it has the basic features that i like, tape monitor loops and phono inputs, and the AUX is a good thing to have too, i dont see a lot of new receivers with aux inputs. and i like the 100 watt rating. i would probably be happy with the 70 watt HK 3370, but i want head room! i dont want to have to be playing this thing at it's max for me to be happy with it's output, u know? i found it on crutchfield for 399. im thinking that that's a little steep. do u guys know if they have these at circuit city? and how much do they cost there? probably cheaper than crutchfield, they're expensive. would u guys recommend anything else? an where would i find a better deal on this receiver? i checked ebay, nothin. is this a good musical receiver? i want good clean uncolored sound. thanks. i have a pair of JBL S26s that i will hook up to whatever receiver i decide to buy. please, all suggestions are welcome. i think marantz is too expensive though, i realy wanna keep under 350 bucks. thanks a lot.
