cheapest receiver with Audyssey for 5.1 setup?

I just need to figure out what the cheapest acceptable receiver is for my 5.1 home theater setup? Even if it is an older model...just want it to last a long time and do what i need it to do. Will have 60" plasma tv, bluray player and roku 3 hooked up. Must have a radio antenna for me to listen to the radio. It must have a good Audyssey program feature to calibrate the speakers. By the way how will i put the mic for that on my bed? I don't have a tripod... thanks!

I would definitely be looking to find a Denon X4000 model. It has the XT32 flavor of Audyssey which has the helpful higher filter resolution and Sub EQ HT which can EQ two subs if so desired.

The Denon X4000 can be found for some nice prices right now and it is LOADED with all the bells and whistles except for the new Atmos surround processing.

The Denon X4000 also has HD radio tuner built in, and you noted you wanted radio.
HD radio offers superior sound and additional stations to the regular AM/FM radio and it is free.

Depends what version of Audyssey you want. If just the basic version of Audyssey MultEQ any of the entry level Denon's will do such as the e300 or e400 or s900BT.

If you want Audyssey MultEQ XT then the x1000, x1100, x2000, x2100.

If you want Audyssey MultEQ XT32 then get the x4000 or x4100

As far as calibrating the microphone on your bed...order a tripod. They're only about $10.
