    I've been using a Pioneer Midi system for about 10 years that plays Dolby Surround (no center channel) and am finally going to get a DD receiver. What is the absolute cheapest (college student) one i can get that has DD & DTS decoding, features like DSP and 100 watt output? My front speakers are 110w max at 8 ohms and the rears are 30W max at 18ohm. Thanks for any suggestions.

    If you just want something cheap now and not worried about upgradability or s-video Circuit City has something as low as $129.99 (Sherwood RD6108). Not the best by far but it has DD and DTS as well as some DSP modes . It's rated at 100wpc but at 6ohm which is cheatin' a little. The people that have bought it seem to like it OK.

    Also at Best Buy you can get the Kenwood VR-606 for $139.00.
    It's rated at 100wpc at 8ohms and even has a few s-video inputs.

    I'm not sure if you can do better than that though.
