I tried making this thread yesterday and for some unknown reason it didn't go through... o well. Ok, I my current setup is: Cheap, Crappy TV Cheap, Crappy DVD Player (Daewooo) Cheap VCR Pioneer SX-255r Receiver () Adire Kit 281 Towers (Ported) PS2 NES 8-bit Nintendo my comptuer also goes through my system for audio and video I want to do some serious upgrading. I think I'm going to put off on the TV for now b/c my roommate for next year might bring his Plasma Screen down The mainquestion is, What receiver do I want? lol, I know I have to get a new one. What I think I need is: 5 channel, w/ 5.1 support. (I will add a plate amp and 15" sub soon!) As many inputs as possible (I am currently using 5 inputs by using a switcher --- low quailty ) both audio and video I want one that's cheap (not sure on price yet), but I want quality. I was looking at a nice Yamaha for awhile, but I found out that it wasn't 4 ohm stable like it said on the website (which the Adires need to be -- oh yah, that's another requirement). What do you guys think I should do? Thanks in advanced! --Great forum, I'm sure I'll be a lurker for a long time.
