    Any opinions on this receiver? I'm looking for a budget setup and was wondering if this would make a decent component.

    Hey Steve I got one of these a couple of months ago and I think it's great.It may not be the top of the line but for me starting out in the HT world it was a good purchase.Around 199 at CC.Flips from DD to DTS when the scences call for it.I'd say go for it.After having a Prologic one for years this one sounds great to me.

    This is basically Kenwoods bottom of the line 80 watt DD/dts receiver and it works and sounds just fine!
    I use the 405 in another room and it sounds great!!!

    I'm sorry guys, your right, the 405 has 80 watts per channel, the new 505 has 100 WPC.
    And with DD/dts is a good deal!

    Thanks for the replies.
    I'm not looking for TOTL stuff, but something fairly decent. I just want to make sure that whatever I buy, even if it's not $500, will be/sound good.
