Ok I'm planning to buy a pair of JBL s26's and a sony sa-wm40 sub. When searching for used stereo receivers what brands should I look out for? Oh yeah, nothing that would be too expensive. I'm looking to spend less than $150. Also, how are new technics stereo receivers?

Jason, the Technics name has been retired. All receivers are now sold under the "Panasonic" name from now forward. There's a good chance that you'll still find some used Technics equipment out there, though. I can't speak much about Technics receivers, but several years back, I did own a Technics cassette deck which was very reliable and performed quite well.

Given the other items you've listed off, have you considered saving up a few more $$ over the next few months? $300 - $350 opens up a lot of opportunities in the used receiver market (Denon 1802, Onkyo 595, etc.).

Thanks, but I'm really trying to keep the price below $150. The receivers you listed, denon 1802 and onkyo 595, are 5 channel right? All I need is a 2 channel receiver.

So far I'm on the lookout for a cheap Sansui or Marantz.

Hey guys, I found a Carver 900 stereo receiver from the mid 80's for $125. Listed at 90 wpc. How are Carver electronics?
