Hey guys, I'm making my first HT system. It will be a 5.1 system composed of Pioneer BS22s for front and surrounds(or FS52 for the fronts, haven't decided yet), Pioneer C22 for the center, and a Dayton Sub1200 for the sub. These will be the parts I will be using.
So now I need to come up with a receiver. I gave myself a price point of $350. So that means I'm looking at the Denon AVR1613, Denon E300, and the Yamaha RX-V375.
I could really care less about networking. All I want is the best sound quality for movies, and a good on screen display. For inputs, I only need 4 hdmi, which all the lower end receivers seem to have.
Any suggestions on receivers? Really I want to go as "cheap" as possible without sacrificing quality. So bang for the buck is important to me.
Here's the 1613 you were looking at.
Also let's you get into a much higher end receiver for the same $350 if you wanted to go that route too
Little more than you wanted to spend but great sq from what I hear.
If its worth anything I agree with mj79. I didn't know about this site but it has some great deals. Good to know about the cs as well. Thanks mj.

There are bad apples with brand new unboxed units as well....
OP I wouldn't be one bit worried about refurbished... Just curious.. Why are you worried? they are refurbished at the respective factory, and carry at least a 1 year warranty.. According to the members on here, the products look like new once received...
So yea, I'll go with a refurb unit for sure.
Hmm now to choose a receiver.

I have a question about Yamaha and YPAO. I know there receivers are well regarded, and really the only reason I was going to get a Denon was for Audyssey.
How is YPAO vs Audessy? Should I consider that, or if I find a good deal on a Yamaha just go with that?
Reason I ask is because I've already seen a few deals on Yamaha.
