Speakers 5.1 and Receiver for $700? Lots of research, but no real experience….help please. 1st time poster and I didn’t know if I should post here or in the Speaker section. Sorry. ***System Wants*** I’m a college student looking to have a decent 5.1 (6.1 if I can) system for my room. I have $700. I have a long background in car audio, but know little about home audio receivers like which companies rate their amps with all driven, one, or a few. The room I have is about 12x12. I’ll be building my own subwoofer probably with a Shiva since Dan Wiggins has educated me. Given my background I enjoy a heavier low end, aggressive mid section, and laid back tweeters. I mainly listen to alternative, rock, and hip-hop. Anyway, I’m thinking that I want to put between $200-$250 towards an amp and $450-$500 on the speakers excluding sub. Should this be changed? I would like to have a warranty on the receiver, but I am not as concerned with a warranty for the speakers. In my system I already have -Sony DVP-NS500V DVD/SACD/VCD/CD http://electronics.bizrate.com/marke...%2DNS500V.html -Sony KV-27FV300 http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTE...&Boutique=wega ***Receivers*** Well here is the research I have done on receivers and my thoughts…suggest away: Harman Kardon: These all seem to be low wattage and I’m worried about that, but they also seem to be the highest rated by most people. Should I be worried about this. Prices from http://www.harmanaudio.com. Harman Kardon HK 3470-Z $188.00 Harman Kardon AVR300-Z $238.00 HK 120: couldn’t find it. Sherwood: Couldn’t find much info, but they are cheap. Denon: Everything is too expensive for me. Except. Denon AVR-483 New In Stock Legacy Sale price: $227.52 Sony: I’m supposed to stay away from these. Onyko: These all seemed pretty expensive. I want to know more about them. I found the ONKYO TX-SR500 at JandR.com for $149.88. http://www.jandr.com/JRProductPage.p...uct_Id=3657144 ONKYO TX-SR501 need to call jandr.com think it might be in the price range. Yamaha: It seems like everyone says that the lower line yamaha’s are good for the money. They are rated with 3 channels driven. This weekend there will be a sale at Tweeter getting rid of older models and savings should be around $100-$150 per receiver. I think this is my best option. It might be the 430 and 530. Whichever would be cleaning out.

I think. Should I worry about going for the Yamaha? Thanks all.
