    I have a NAD receiver, and I'm very happy with it...
    If you like NAD, they give you great value for the money!

    If you can possibly step it up to $999, Circuit City is selling the Onkyo 898 for $999. This is most likely a price mistake and it will sell for $1500 when they realize. However, people are going to CC and buying for the $1000 price. Check out the specs on this thing. Pretty amazing.

    What speakers do you have or plan on using? It is important that your reciever regardless of how much of a Bang that it gives you for your buck is capable of driving your speakers sufficiently.

    Outlaw makes an excellent receiver. Could go with a Denon AVR-1802 and a couple monoblock amps as well. If not, Denon AVR-2802, Yamaha RX-V800, Onkyo TX-DS696, or the Marantz SR-5200.

    For ~$700, I'd go with the Marantz SR6200 or SR7200. Great music, very good HT.
    If you do more HT, then the Denon 3802. The 3802 and higher models have the 9 speaker output for HT AND multi channel music. So you can have 2 different configurations with different rear speakers for each application.
    When asking a question like this (and we have gone over this before) what you will get is OPINIONS, and biased ones at that. No avoiding it. What you need to figure out is what sounds good to YOU, not US.

    I have to agree with John, Marantz is probably one of the best for music sources (I have a Denon 4800, but I looked into Marantz before buying my Denon)
    But for the best bargain out there I would have to give the nod to Outlaw unit.
