Pardon my ignorance, I'm going to get my first reciever to start my HT in the next couple of months. It's a smaller room, so I'm going to stick to 5.1. I see lots of votes for Harmon Kardon and Onkyo. A few questions: 1. Why do HK recievers seem to put out so much less power, but are still so reputable? 2. So if power isn't everything, what are the other features or specifications that I should be looking at? Thanks for your help guys. I really appreciate it.
