Budget Receiver Suggestion

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a budget A/V receiver for a budget family room HT system I'm assembling. Use will be roughly 70/10/10/10 HDTV/DVD/CD/PS3. The room has tile floors and the system will be situated roughly along the middle of a 18' wall and face a 18' long room with 8' ceilings. Speakers will most likely be the Jamo 426 package, with or without a budget sub like a Polk PSW10. Ideally I'd like to keep the cost under $200, but could go to $300 or $400 if it's worth it. I need at least 3 HDMI inputs, but am not sure if I need the receiver to upconvert the signals as I'm assuming the HDTV set I will soon purchase will automatically upconvert the signals. I'd prefer new, but am not totally opposed to refurbished from accessories4less, which seems to be a good deal, although I've never purchased refurbished electronics. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

If you don't mind and ugly UI, I would recommend the Pioneer. They have a lot to offer for the money. You can get a 7.1 Pioneer VSX-1022-K for $250. Onkyo's are pretty good an inexpensive, and they usually offer more HDMI's than all other brands.

+1. I've been using Denon receivers for at least 10 years, without trouble ( currently using an AVR 4310CI ). smile.gif

Yes, Denon is pretty good. I am currently looking at the Denon 2113ci and the Pioneer SC-1222.
