I know there are several threads about this but I don't know enough about receivers to answer my own questions.
I'm moving into an apartment in a few months and I need advice for an adequate <400 dollar receiver. I'm in college, so it's a pretty small apartment and the distance from the speakers to the listener is probably 10ft max.
I'm looking to get either Polk Monitor 50's or 60's and I was looking at the Yamaha RX-V465 but after doing some research, primarily on here, I realized it might not be the best choice because the Polk's aren't the most efficient and need a steady current to sound their best.
Also connected to the receiver will be a PS3 and Digital cable box, both HDMI, and an LCD tv. The receiver has to have at least 2 HDMI in with audio/video passthrough.
The system will be used primarily for home theater, if that helps one way or another, but also for music listening. Primarily jazz.
With all that being said, would the RX-V465 get the job done? Any and all suggestions are welcome, whether it be for a different receiver or equivalent speakers that would mate better to the RX-V465. I'm also not opposed to buying used or refurbished if necessary. Thanks
