Hi everyone
Welcome to my thread!

I'm looking for a budget receiver /or amp. I'm putting $150 on my budget. I 98% listen to music and the very rare Netflix/youtube from my phone. My inputs are currently line out to RCA for my iPod, 3.5mm to RCA for my phone, RCA for my 25+1 disc CD player. I could use USB if I had it in my budget. If a remote was in my budget it'd be nice but not needed.

My goal is to have something that sounds good low but can sound just as good loud. How much power do I need is debatable. I'd love 300x2. Or 150x4. But I know that's not an option. With quality clean power how much do I really need? Better question is how much can I afford? 50-110x2 is what IV found so far. I'd like more then 8 ohm stable. If I could get 4 or even 2 ohm stable it'd be nice. We always want more for the money.

Some thoughts :






Some thoughts on the no side?

Of your choices I would go with one of the 100W Sherwood models. If you could save up a bit more I'd go with the Harman Kardon 3390 for $229 on Amazon (solid 80W per channel and 4 ohms stable).
