    the movers i had broke my amp and speakers. they gave me 5k to buy new. so here is the plan

    1 receiver (had the h/k 7000)
    i need something similar or better. will use mostly for movie matching but still need to pack a punch if i want to listen to music


    i know this is the wrong place to post it but i also need some speakers just the 2 front.eventually get the full 5.1
    what would pair up well with the new receiver u guys are describing. i dont really know anything about the new stuff cause mine was 5 years old and im sure it changed a lot since

    tks in advance

    If you just want to buy 2 fronts out of that $5000, then you should look to buying separate components instead of a receiver. You setup will be a little more future proof and can potentially sound a bit better.

    Go and listen to the Rotel 1080 amp mated with a RSP1068 pre amp. That's only a two channel amp but its a great start on a nice 7.1 system later if you add a 5 channel amp down the road...or get the RMB1075 or RMB1095 now which are both 5 channel amps. As for speakers let your ears be the judge just make sure that what ever you buy has a matching center speaker in the same line up.
