    What is the best 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound receiver out there? I am looking for one that is under $500 (or even $400 if possible.)

    Speaking of refurbs, here's a couple of solid mid-level receivers available from uBid:

    Yamaha RX-V2500

    Onkyo TX-SR703

    Both have ample power, expandability and fairly current features. If you're more inclined to movies as opposed to music, the Yamaha may be a better option, however both are excellent choices for movies as well as music and will be a very good value.

    In fact, just a couple of weeks ago I picked up a RX-V2500 from them. It's in brand new condition and so far, I'm quite pleased with its performance and feature set. This says a bit as I was quite fond of the Denon AVR-3803 I used prior to it.

    Good luck and have fun with your decision making! [​IMG] -TD

    And again speaking of refurbs . . . H/K also sells refurb units on ebay for good prices.

    If you buy an HK refurb make sure to check onecall and jr.com first. Quite often those refubs sell for more then new ones from those two places.
