    i wanna dump my Yamaha HTR-5640 and go for something with more power. By the end of 2003 my setup will be:

    1 65" widescreen
    1 DVD/VCR Player
    2 Rocket RS750
    2 Rocket RSC200
    2 Athena AS-F2
    1 SVS PB2-Plus


    Alright, an 8.1 reciever for $2,000 or less, any suggestions?

    i want a reciever 8.1 cause i eventually want 8.1 and if im gonna spend alot of money on a reciever i want to have it for a long time and if i want to have it for a long time it's gotta be 8.1 or a year from now im gonna go dammit

    Thanks

    The Pioneer VSX 53TX is an awesome reciever at $1500 MSRP I'm sure you can find it at way below that. Also Yamha RX-V2400 MSRP $999 another excellent choice and new to the market.Try www.etronics.com for the Pioneer 55TXi. If you want to save some money and not give up features try the Pioneer VSX 2012K.

    Harman/Kardon AVR-7200 from www.soundcity.com

    $1200 brand new and they are authorized dealer. It is HK's flagship recievers so in terms of features it really isn't missing any. It has alot of power per channel, 100 watts.

    It is a 7.1 reciever as well and includes all the decoders and everything you will ever want on a recievers. Go check it out. Enjoy!

    You might also want to look at the soon to be released NAD T773. The msrp is $2000, but you MIGHT be able to find one authorized for $1500, but I'm not sure since its still early in the game. It is rated 110 x 7 and weighs 53lbs. The other recommendations are great as well as I believe the HK 7200 is tough to beat at the prices people are getting them for these days.

    I second the Pioneer Elite suggestion...mine puts out a whole lot of power into my Athenas, full 7.1 with all amps, well built, nice warm sound...they're definately worthy of consideration, even the "bottom" of the line 53TX (which is what I have) is a fantastic piece.

    i would look for a marantz 8300,
    i would also look at the t773
    i would also consider the H&K

    but for $1500-2000, you could go outlaw and get separates as well...
