Stereo Receiver Recommendations, 2 or 5.1 channel (Marantz or Yamaha)
Hi, I am new to the forums and I am looking for low to mid level stereo receiver recommendations. I'm not a hi fi buff or anything just middle of the road and try to research before a purchase. I have current Samsung tvs, no 3d, Directv w/Genie, cable internet, Apple airport extreme and Panasonic bluray players. I have an old JVC AV receiver, 20 ys. app and old Mitsubishi speakers, 35 yrs. app.
My thinking today is that HDTV is a great thing. However, I feel that the technology is already built into the hdtv and blu player. With that thought my idea is on the sound basis as tv sound is not so great. What I would like to do is purchase an am/fm stereo receiver and pipe tv sound through it as well as fm radio, music cds and dvd blu ray sound albeit by rca jacks. So I'm eliminating the V in AV. And work on new speakers too.
I hope you can follow my thinking. Of course the unit would need the appropriate jacks. I have been checking into Yamaha, Marantz and Harmon Kardon. Denon? Want to stay away from Onkoyo and Pioneer. New, refurb and clearance are ok. I've been checking A4L website too. Thanks for your thoughts and help.
