Hello Everyone!
Cliff Note version: Seeking a new cheap receiver.
I purchased the Bose acoustimass 10 series iii (2002). I used them for about 6 months and then place them in corner with a sheet over it in my house.
Fast forward to now, I recently brought them out from the cover sheet and would like to use them with my Samsung BLUERAY HDMI.
I hooked the Bose speakers up to an old reciever and they sounded great to me.
I know there are better speakers out there, but for now I would like to use these speakers. I have a small room; 17 x 20 (give or take).
I would like to find a new cheap reciever for these speakers.. Seeking suggestions... Price range around $200 give or take... much less would be great if out there.
Just need to be point me in the right direction. This is will mainly be used for blueray movies through HDMI and some FM music (no streaming or gaming)
If you can suggest some features to look for in a reciever that would be great. I don't need all the bells and whisles and I do not need full power either.
I thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Assuming you want a 5.1 receiver, Walmart.com has the Onkyo RC430 for $178. I don't know if it's compatible with that Bose speaker system though.

Every AVR is compatible with the AM(whatever it was you got, not scrolling up)
If all you have is HDMI sources...this is all you need...

If you have some non-HDMI sources you have that you need HDMI upconversion for..
