Haloo folks. Just got a new roomate, and he wants to make use of some spare speakers I have, particularly some NHT 1.2's I've had laying about. It's a simple setup, just TV/DVD/VCR/music, all as a small bedroom set-up. Inlikely he will even use anything other than the 2 front speakers, but it's possible he might get the 'bug' and go from there... as we all have at one time or another. (he does have some itty bitty speakers for surrounds possibly) So, he emails me this link: http://www.ecost.com/ecost/shop/deta...=247585#scroll A refurbished ripped receiver from a HTB for $82. The mini manual shows how very basic it is, which of course it would be at that price, even refurbed. I told him to wait a day before purchasing, figured I'd ask for some opinions here. You think this is one of those 'for $82 bucks, give it a shot, what's to lose?' deals, or should have one of those 'Do Not Buy!' banners waving all around? Any alternatives anyone knows about that might be more reputable? (Ecost has some poor biz practice and customer service reviews) It could just be me and my aversion to buying anything audio that's out and out crap... Sorry for the length, any quick hits would be great. Thanks folks!
