I have a pretty crummy reciever right now Some old kenwood that like 3 or 4 years old. Its rated 100x5 wpc and has dolby digital and dts. Its a reciever i got in a HTIB (my first HT) anyway I have ok speakers and a pretty good sub. but it doesnt sound good to me I have to crank up the volume to hear dialogue and to get the bass impact I want to get from movies. By the way my speakers are the polkrm7200 set and a SVS pb2 plus. Right now I dont have sufficient funds to get a new reciever but im wondering if its really that important? Also I want to get something i wont have to upgrade for a really long time...so would serpartes be the better way to go?
