    A frequent question around these parts is what to choose as a decent entry-level receiver. This is a fairly interesting read, if you put stock in 'professional' reviews. Compared are:

    Denon 1804
    JVC RS-8032VSX
    Marantz SR4400
    Onkyo TX-SR501
    Sony STR-DB790

    The Sony and Denon were rated highest, with the Sony described as "the most impressive amp in this round-up."

    Hmm that link seems rather off a bit... I had a hard time finding the review until I finally clicked on "Home" and found it on the "front page" of the website.

    Try this link:

    That might work better, I think...

    Also, Home Cinema Choice is a UK publication AFAIK so some model numbers may be a little different from NA models. For example the Sony STR-DB790 "QS" is the same as the NA STR-DA1000ES "ES" receiver with a few subtle differences.

    Dang the liitle cheapo Onkyo came out really well...

    I am surprised. But the two I recently installed, sound really great.
