    well, this be my first post on the forum, been reading for some time now though. for my first question, when people ask what kind of reciever they should get, everybody seems to ask if its for music or movies. what i don't understand, is why does it matter? they are both just sounds. obviously, it goes right over my head and has for some time. so, what should you look for when you use it for movies? so what should you look for when you use it for music?

    Music is currently more demanding due to the compression scheme that DVD's use.

    If you have a receiver that can play and intelligibly then it can do good enough on movies, whereas it might be shouty and compressed on music. This is just a possible example of sound characteristics.

    Personally, I feel that if music is primary goal then focus on getting 2 channels right then add some receiver w/ preouts down the road. But that's just me.
