I've been living with my Sony DPL receiver for quite a while now, but I feel it is time to get in step with the rest of the world and get a 5.1/DTS receiver. My birthday is next month, so I only have a little while to decide on the right model. I am leaning toward the Yamaha HTR-5440. The first thing you need to know is that my system is in a bedroom (15 X 15 feet, give or take). Here are my current speakers: Center - Polk CS245i Mains - Marantz XXXX (they are old, so I don't know the model. Planning to upgrade to Polks in near future) Rears - pair of Polk R10's Sub - Sony SAWM40 Keep in mind that the only things I will be connecting to my new receiver will be the speakers and the DVD player, so I only need the basic inputs (no s-video etc). Also I only need enough power to suffice in a modestly-spaced bedroom. My main requirement is good sound. I don't want hissing, static etc. With all these things in mind, and a budget of less than $300, I am nearly sold on the Yamaha HTR-5440. I have heard very good things about it, and I can get it for about $250 at BB. Have I found the receiver I am looking for, or am I overlooking a model that will suit me even better? Thanks for your time.
