I've budgeted $300 to get a new receiver, and focused mainly on Stereo receivers (Yamaha, Onkyo, Denon) for 2 reasons. 1) Surround receivers in this price range tend to be missing S-video ins and outs. 2) An assumption that Stereo Receivers available at this price will out-perform Surround Receivers available at this price. Currently I have 2 speakers, and use the stereo mostly for music. I'd like to start working on a home theater set up in a year or so. In Receivers, the quality of sound is what's most important to me. In general should I go Stereo or Surround at this price point? I've found a reputable local dealer that has a used Yamaha HTR 5250 for $299, should I get that instead of a new receiver? I'm leaning toward this solution.
