Hi Everyone, new to the forum.

I was just given a set of Bose Accustimass 10 (I know, I know, but it's free) for my new home and need help choosing a receiver. I'd like to stay under $250+tax (strict, gf's already not happy about another expense) and here are a few I've found.

Sony STR-DH520 - Refurb

Yamaha RXV371

Pinoneer VSX-522-K

Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated. I'm no Audiophile, this is used to integrate my 3D TV, HTPC and PS3. 3D needed, but no need for airplay, ipod etc. USed for movies, music and occasional gaming.

Thanks!

My condolances on the Bose.

Yes, you should be able to connect the acoustimas 10 bass module to any A/V reciever. If you dont have a lot of money, go with an entry level onkyo or denon or pioneer. I personally dont like going with refurbs, but thats up to you.

Stand tall and shake the heavens...

Thank you both for your help and recommendations! Unfortunately, I'm up north and prices are overinflated in Canada. I'll see if I can ship one up through my company.
