    I just ordered a pair of Ascend CBM-170s and now have ~3 weeks to get a receiver before they arrive [​IMG]

    I'll only have a stereo pair and probably a sub to start with, but I'd like a 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 receiver for future-proofing my HT system; it'll be used mostly for music now.

    At the minimum, I'd like DD and DTS, and say pre-outs for 6.1 if there isn't a rear-channel amp onboard.

    I'm looking at H/K AVR325, Marantz SR5200, (refurb price-points), etc as a reference point, but don't necessarily need all of the features. It just needs to be musical and have a fair bit of power. Stylish looks are a plus too [​IMG]

    Feel free to make offers of whatever equipment you have.

    Thanks

    I have a lightly used Yamaha HTR-5560 if you would be interested in that.

    I have a Marantz 7300 that has not been used much at all. I am considering selling it. P.M me or E-mail me a offer. I have heard Marantz are great for music. I use mine for movies and it's great.

    I purchased a Harmon Kardon AVR-225 because a) it is a HK and b) it was inexpensive. We'll see how long it lasts before I get upgrade-itus :)

    At any rate it will do for the time being and I can put the small surplus I saved into a subwoofer.

    Thanks to those who I've talked to and who've made me offers!
