    I'm trying to add home theater to very small room so space is my number one concern, cost second.
    What I've looked for, and haven't found yet, is a receiver that does both DD and DTS surround sound. It doesn't need to have anything fancy or even a lot of power, just be small and cost effective.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    The only things I've seen that come close are the HT in a box items which would be fine but I already have the DVD player and speakers.
    Thanks!
    Anthony

    The technics models seem to have what you need. $399.00 CAD or about $250.00 usd for a Technics SADX-1040. DTS and DD, DPL.

    Without a price range it is hard to help you. You may be out of luck if the size of the receiver/decoder is important and you alreadu have the DVD, because most AVRs are not as small as the ones included with HTIBs.
    Sony has DD/DTS AVRs for as little as $199. I picked up an STR-DE475 for my bedroom for $159 (brand new) at a local electronics shop, then sold it when I bought my SR6200 and moved my old Sony receiver into the bedroom.
