    Im Willing to spend up to 1500.00 but would rather spend in the 600.00-800.00 range. My question is should I get a reciever or serpartes...? I was thinking outlaw combo or yamaha 1400 or a denon 3803 or 3805. what should I pick? I Dont care too much about bells and whisles as long as it got the most current sound formats...Dolby Digital Ex, DTSes etc... By the way my current reciever is some old kenwood(5 years old) not sure what model....also I have the polk rm7200 set(Im fine with my current speakers for now)

    I would have said you should buy new speakers, but since you are fine with them, buy a H/K AVR7200 @ $800 or so and smile at all the money you just saved.

    Yamaha RX-V2400 is excellent, and I'm hearing a lot of good things about the Denon 3805.

    Actually, my Yammy HTR-5760 is going to arrive within a few days. The price was $399 + free shipping.

    I've owned the H/K AVR-7200 for approx. the past 7 months. Personally, I think the HTR-5760 @ half the price is an even sweeter deal. I never thought I would "downgrade" and be so impressed. However, I'm using a Yamaha HTR-5650 at the moment, and I can't believe that it offers. Getting my "Zone 2" to power up is so easy - I just hit the "B" speaker button - and that was after I configured the "B" speakers to power a 2nd zone. With the H/K, it took a few button clicks, etc. to get Zone 2 to function.

    With the HTR-5760, it features on-screen programming - something the HTR-5650 doesn't have, so things should get easier.

    I'll do a "mini review" on the HTR-5760 when I receive it.
