    i'm totally new to this stuff. i want to get the best receiver i can for my $300. i'm a poor college student so i don't have much to spend right now. i'm gonna need two good front speakers too, i was thinking of looking at boston acoustic (i have them in my car and love them) i need advice on the best receiver for my money and what are some speakers i should look at, for probably around $200 a pair.
    thanks in advance!!

    Will you be using your system for music or home theater or both?

    If both, look at the Denon 1603 or the Marantz 4300 or the Harmans, I believe some are priced at around $300.

    As for speakers, you need to listen to them connected to the receiver that you will be purchasing.

    i would go with Harman Kardon, i think it's the best bang for the buck and is awsome for two channel music. don't be fooled by the low wattage ratings...HK under rates their receivers.

    You should be looking into the remanufactured market and the b-stocks to get the most receiver for the "college budget." Do a search on Harman Audio and find the other outlets where these units are sold, still with full warrantees.

    If you check out Ebay, Harman Audio sells their refurbs online. You can stay well within your $300 budget and get a good receiver from them. Also, you will get the full 2 year warranty.
