    First of all, this is a great site. I am really a beginner in all of this. I need a receiver for this setup. I am looking at $400-$500.

    Speakers I just got..
    Infinity Aplha 40's for R/L
    Infinity c25 center
    Ininity ps8 sub
    Infinity ers210 in-wall for surrounds.

    Looking at
    Yamaha v640
    Denon 1804
    Onkyo 601
    Marantz 5400
    HK 230
    HK 325 refurb.

    Any info would be great. I am only able to listen to the denon and yamaha. I am not looking for the perfect receiver, just do not want to make a muistake, if I have to order on-line.

    thanks in advance.

    FWIW, I've read that h/k receivers match up well with Infinity speakers, which makes sense since both are owned by Harman International. You'd figure the company would like its various products to work well together. I'm currently using a h/k 7200 with Infinity Alpha 50 mains and JBL (another Harman Int'l company) S36II surrounds and like what I'm hearing.

    I also like the way my HK sounds with my Infinity Alpha speakers. There has been some discussion about build quality of the HKs on this site so you may want to check that out.

    I find the Onkyo receivers sound too bland with Infinity speakers, so lifeless. Ive had good matches with HK, Marantz and Rotel.

    I have Entras matched with Yamaha and want a new receiver because the Yamaha does not match well. I want to look into Rotel and Marantz myself. By the way, I have played my Infinity speakers with my Nad integrated amp and they sound really nice with it, so I can say that Nad sounds good with Infinity also.

    Virtually any receiver you decide on will match up just fine with your infinity speakers. Buy the receiver that you like best.
