Hi everyone,

I've got some in-ceiling speakers in my basement and am looking for a good surround sound receiver. There's only 2 wires coming out of the wall, but 5 speakers in the ceiling, so I'm not sure if I need additional speakers, etc. I've been looking at the Denon series, but I'm not sure if that gives me more than I really need for this simple setup. Any recommendations would be appreciated! I'm trying to spend as little as I can, but still get something relatively decent. I'm not an audiophile by any means so I probably don't need anything fancy!

Thanks,
Kristin

Check out ac4l.com for factory refurbished Denon, Onkyo and Marantz models (Marantz doesn't have an entry level model though). http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/category/avreceiver/Home-Audio/Home-Theater-Receivers/1.html
Look at the Denon

391 ($109) http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/DENAVR391/DENON-AVR-391-5.1-Channel-AV-Home-Theater-Receiver/1.html

1312 ($119) http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/DENAVR1312/DENON-AVR-1312-5.1-Channel-A/V-Home-Theater-Receiver/1.html

1612 ($169) http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/DENAVR1612/DENON-AVR-1612-5.1-Channel-A/V-Home-Theater-Receiver/1.html

or Onkyo

309 ($139) http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/ONKTXSR309/Onkyo-TX-SR309-5.1-Channel-3-D-Ready-Home-Theater-Receiver/1.html

509 ($189) http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/ONKTXNR509/Onkyo-TX-NR509-5.1-Channel-3-D-Ready-Network-A/V-Receiver/1.html

The Denon 1612 and Onkyo 509 have Audyssey room correction and EQ which is a big plus for sound quality. Ac4l offers extended warranties from Warrantech for $35 for 3 years.

You also have to find the rest of those speakers wires smile.gif .Or the speakers could be wired in series or parallel (two or more together). Not really a good thing to do in most cases.
