Receiver suggestions..

Hi everyone. I apologize if there is a master thread for these kinds of questions. I did a quick search and nothing of the sort came up.

I'm looking for a reciever to pair with a set of speakers I found at a garage sale today. Here are the speaker models:

2x Athena LS-300B fronts
2x Athena AS-B2-1 rears
1x Athena AS-C1-1

I'm currently not looking to add a subwoofer since the system will be in a townhouse, but I do want it to sound decent enough for music and movies in a smallish (12ft by 16ft) room. This will just be a starter set for me that I will eventually upgrade when the wife and I move up to a house, but I couldn't go wrong with this set for $120. The guy even threw in a Pioneer DVR with a 500gb HDD for free.

Besides the speakers, the other components of the system are a Sony PS4, a Sony KDL-W650A 32" TV and an older Pioneer DVR. I also connect my laptop from time to time via HDMI.

Given that this is a budget/starter system, I don't want to spend too much on the receiver, but I have convinced the wife to stretch the budget if need be.

Thanks in advance for your help!

These are 8-ohm, 89db speakers so any AVR should be able to drive them quite well. Check your local Best Buy stores for 2014 models on clearance and select a model that best meets your feature/input/output/budget requirements.

** Think the AVR is defective?  Reset the microprocessor 5 times.
