Brother has a dedicated room with all the autistic trimmings. Needs a reciever A.S.A.P. .......Spends 50% on Xbox C.o.D. 25% watching Blu rays and 25% watching sports. His budget is around $650.00......... What would be the best bang for buck to run his B&W CM 9 speakers?

Marantz SR5007 is $599 at Crutchfield.

I am thinking about replacing my old H/K 247 with the 5007.

LOL! It must be the luck of the draw. I owned two of the HK 247's and had to send both back. I got a 254 in return the second time. The 254 was pretty decent.
