Are there any decent receivers, in the $500 range, that have a 'real' phono input? A friend at work is looking to buy her husband a HT setup (receiver, speakers 5.1). I was ready to reccomend Onkyo, Denon or possibly Outlaw ..then she mentioned that he has a large record collection and keeps them in perfect listening condition. It's my understanding that a record player needs an amplified input?? or something like that? I have no idea which receivers have a 'real' phono input and am looking for reccomendations. Once the receiver list is produced, they will look at speaker packages from Paradigm, Energy and whatever other brands are in the same price range ...and availible locally. If they can afford it ...an SVS sub will likely round out the bass DPL2 would be nice, but isn't strictly neccessary.
