Well, not a lot, but I did OK... I also had a good month at work(FINALLY)... and have a few bucks to spend. I'm really leaning toward an HK, Onkyo, or Yamaha. Entry/mid-level Some background: Philips HD widescreen 30" Onkyo 6 disc prog. dvd Paradigm Focus fronts, cc270 center, Bose 201's rear duty Dayton Tiny Mighty II from PE Xbox and ..., UM... ah,... KLH 5.1 I would like to add that my Onkyo dvd has Dts capability, and that would be a nice feature... If I kept my old receiver, and bought a dts decoder???
