As a baseline, I had used some Logitech z680s for maybe 10yrs until they were taken out by smoke damage in a house fire. I was pretty happy w/them but now I am looking to replace (http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Computer-Speakers-5-Speaker-Silver/dp/B00007AKDP). The room is rectangular, approx 14'x21' w/couch roughly squaring the viewing space @ 14'x16' (rear speakers behind couch pointing inward). My budget is less than $1500 for reciever/speakers. I have just started looking and am considering the following: Harman Kardon HKTS60 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00413OXLO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER Yamaha RX-V475 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B981F2O/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DE Any input would be appreciated. I'm not particularly brand-loyal, but do like Yamaha recievers...I am willing to get whatever is the bast bang/buck though.
