    As I said in an earlier thread, I am on a low budget, I have about $170.00. I am looking into this Kenwood. How is this reciever. I am pretty much set on a Kenwood, is this the best for around this price. Thanks.

    I have the VR-407, which is similar except for the inclusion of S-video switching. Sound quality is extremely good for this price range, with very low noise and excellent dynamic range. Although the sound is not as spacious as a $1000+ receiver, it is still an able performer. DTS in particular is very tight and focused.
    Also at that price point you are foregoing DSP, which in my opinion is useless on the Kenwoods, as they are pretty overblown.
    I recently saw this unit for around $160 at Sam's Club.
