I recently purchased a 55" sony xbr led, and absolutely love it. I got it for around 2700 a while back, when they were on special at best buy. I currently have a sony all in one surround sound kit (around 350 bucks) and it's mediocre, but I want to drop some money and replace it. I also have my computer hooked up, and my ps3 for blurays and gaming. My brother in law gave me a killer sub, so all I really need is a nice receiver, 5.1 speakers, and that's it. ...well, of course speaker wire, speaker stands, etc. I have around 600 bucks to drop on a receiver, center channel, right and left front, and right and left rear. I bought a really expensive onkyo receiver several years back, and it died....so was thinking maybe pioneer or yamaha? I really don't know much about brands anymore. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Forgot to mention, it's a small living room setup, maybe 15' x 10' with a ceiling height (sort of slightly vaulted) of around 12' high.
Thanks in advance.
