    I am in the process of upgrading my HT and realize I definately need a new reciever. I am looking for something in to $300-$500 range. Some of the ones I have considered are:
    HK AVR330
    Pioneer Elite VSX-41
    Denon AVR-2803
    Onkyo TX-SR601

    Are there any others I should consider? Which of these is the best(and for the $ also)? Also I know none of the recievers will be able to properly power my speakers(esp my L&R I would like 200-250W RMS ea), and I know nothing about amps and preamps. WHat is a preamp for? DO I need it to have an amp power my speakers? Are there any brands/features/specs I should look for? I was hping to get a Rotel or B&M amp or 2, are these good brands at a semi resonable price? if not what would be? Also what if any other hardware will I need to use my amp/preamp? Thanks for all the help!
