I think I have finally come to a decision on the reciever I want. Pioneer VSX-1014TX-K. I origionally was considering Denon AVR-1905 but the addition of the THX select certification and MCACC have swayed me more towards the pioneer. Considering the pioneer is 110 watts per channel my origional concideration for getting B&W 300 series speakers is probably not a good idea sinse B&W list them at a power handling of 25-100 watts. My budget is about US$1300 (plus whatever I can get for my KR-V7030 and speakers maybe $300). I'm guessing about $150 per speaker plus about $300 for a sub. But this probably will overshoot what I am hoping to get everything for. I am certain klipsch is out of my price range. B&W possibly too concidering the power of the receiver unless that can be reduced. I'm afraid I really don't know much of anything about brands of speakers. And I'm afraid there aren't very many places near me that have setups for me to listen to stuff. I'm hoping to narrow down the field before I start looking for places to listen to speakers.
