    I have narrowed it down to these recievers
    Denon 1905
    Yamaha HTR-5760
    Pioneer VSX-1014TX

    Please any feedback if you own any one of these
    Matched up with
    Polk System
    Center CS300
    Rear RT15 (4 of them)
    Front RT800
    Subs Velodyne (2 of them)
    VA-907.2 and VA-807
    TV Pioneer Elite Pro-510 HD

    I want something powerful enough to drive everything and make it sound great also. Thanks very much for the help and your thoughts are much appreciated, as I haven't bought a reciever in years.

    They're all good receivers. Buy the one with the features you want and with the best price. You won't make a mistake with any of them.

    Best is a relative term. Most receivers at the same price point are going to be of similar quality. It really boils down to personal preferences. I, personally, prefer Yamaha. One of the reasons I chose Yamaha over Denon is that I like the sales staff at the store that sold Yamaha beter than the sales staff at the store that sold Denon.

    Yamaha makes some great stuff, but when it comes to service, good luck. So if something goes wrong with the receiver, you will have problems getting assistance. Do as much research as you can and you're sure to be satisfied. Best of luck...

    I am open to other options in similar price ranges or even going to the next price range if it is worth it; and appreciate your advice
    (I am not sure if I posted the quote correctly?)

    You can pick up a Yamaha RX-V1400 (equivalent to 5790) on clearance at local dealers - about $500.

    I just helped a friend purchase a new sound system. He purchased Canton Karat speakers and the Pioneer vsx 1014 rcvr. The rcvr is easy to set up. You should use banana plugs for the speaker wire terminations at the rcvr. This unit comes with its own mic for automatic calibration. All I can say is that I am very impressed with the whole system.
    If I were looking for a rcvr today I would not hesitate to purchase the Pioneer vsx 1014. Very nice, warm sounding rcvr.

    Good luck in your purchase,

    Regards, Tom

    Good power, good options, good price.
