    With a thousand dollar budget, I've come up w/ the following: Paradigm Atoms(front)-- 180.00
    Paradigm Micro(rears)-- 150.00
    CC-170 (center)-- 150.00
    Thought the Micros would be easier to mount up on the walls in rear as well as look a little better(smaller).
    Now, Im left with 400.00 - 500.00 for a reciever. Im trying to decide between Denon and Yamaha. However, it seems that there are several different lines for each brand. For example Best Buy sells one 'line' while the local audio store by me sells another...Looking for reciever opinions(models #?) as well as any suggestions on the Paradigms...(I heard these once and Im sold)
    Thanks.. Mike

    The differences in model numbers on the Yamaha stuff is just that....differences in model numbers.
    In order to sell cheaper, the mass merchants get the same receivers with different numbers.
    If your goal is to spend as little as possible, you should look at the Yamahas. Denon will always be more money.
    But you should also look at Pioneer and Sony as well.
    All have inexpensive, but decent, units out at the mass merchants.
