Shoud I buy a budget receiver with all the latest decoding e.g. PL11 etc and buy an external amp to power all my channels OR should I just buy a powerful receiver? I am leaning towards the budget receiver/external amplifer but what budget receiver would give me good clean quality processing? In the end, my HT will be more 70% music and 30% movies. I want a loud system for my parties yet I want my HT experience to be just as good. This is the order that I will be buying: Receiver and/Amplifier Speakers HDTV Other I'm now researching Receivers. Thank you for all your opinions.
