    I am building a two channel system with the following:

    Parasound HCA 2200II
    Likely Totem Sttafs speakers (could still change)
    Adire Alignment Tempest

    I need a receiver with pre-outs that is cheap and sounds great. I decided I should be able to get a decent receiver and save some money, plus have decoders and extra amplification channels if I go back to 5.1.

    So who knows of some good resonably priced receivers that sound great as a preamp and of course have pre-outs etc.

    I have no problem going used, if need be.

    The Marantz AV9000 pre/tuner makes a really good 2 or 2.1 head unit. The only thing it might lack for a music system is a phono input. look for one used off E-bay or Audiogon. It will mix down 5.1 material to 2.1 amazingly well and it's really good on stereo sources.

    Your definition of cheap may be different than mine, but I would consider the NAD T752/62, or Marantz 7300 OSE.
