Hello all! I am trying to set up a home theatre system in my basement and my current setup is.....invisible. I have been reading this site since June and trying to learn as much as I can. Currently I am borrowing a friends shoddy RCA from the late 80's. Here is the system I plan to setup followed by a question... 32" Sony Wega HDTV JBL S CenterII JBL S38's X 4 (Front R&L, Back R & L) Jbl PB12 subwoofer ???????Receiver I have been trying to work out in my mind which receiver I should go with and am not sure where to start. I have been looking at the Yamaha 5490 because of the technology and individual amps... I will only be running a 5.1 surround system for a while so I don't know if this might be overkill. I like the way this model sounds and all of the different options that it has. Any feedback? I am willing to spend between 500-650 on the receiver. (One more thing.... any criticism about the tv or speakers) What are some equivalent receivers that I should look into? Thanks in advance for your feedback!
