Hopefully after this post I can stop being a newbie and asking everyone what they think Ok I am still looking for a receiver and a subwoofer for my future system. The speakers for this system will be Eosone RSF400's in front and Energy e:xl 15's in the back. This system will be used for hometheater and for listening to music, so I want it to be strong in both aspects. I don't have the money to replace the speakers I have so they will have to do. Ok, here are the receivers I was looking at: Pioneer VSXD810S Onkyo 595 Denon 1802 Now the Pioneer is at the top of my list because it has Dolby 6.1, DTS, ES, and generally has everything I could want (besides possibly DLII). But I don't want to have something that is underpowered (as stated by another user of this forum) that will leave me less than satisfied. I was wondering if it is still a good choice taking into account my speaker setup. This is not going to be a top of the line HT setup, but I still want something that will make the average person like myself go WOW. The subwoofers I am looking at are: PSB Subsonic 5 Athena P2 Cerwin Vega LW-12 Mirage FRXS8 Acoustic Research ARS 112 It's worth noting that I found the Acoustic Research for $217 shipped! I don't need anything to rumble the whole house, and my setup will be in my bedroom for the time being. I've got lots of great help and ideas from you guys so far. I appreciate all the help you have given me and hope that this will help me decide on my first true HT setup.
