Hi, I am looking for a new receiver to use with my dvd player and laserdisc player. I am far from an audiophile and I have had a Sony receiver for the last couple of years. I realize now that Sony receivers (especially the lower end ones) have bad reputations. The catalyst for me wanting to get another receiver is that the Sony will often not recognize the DTS signal being passed by my Pioneer Elite CLD-79. I am looking for a good value receiver in the $200-$250 price range. I have read good things about the Onkyo 502 and I can also get a Panasonic SAXR10 digital receiver, which I have heard good things about, for around $150 shipped. I was also wondering about the lower end Pioneers. I know threads like this are a dime a dozen but I would appreciate any help, thanks, Matt.
