Flagship receivers of yester year, what are they? I am looking for a used one...

I am having trouble finding model nos. for older receivers. I am going to use it for my bedroom computer and get rid of my Klipsch Promedia's. I don't think I want to go to far back but my only real criteria is Dolby Digital since I will feed it with my nForce 2 mobo.

The reason that the focus is on flagships is mostly due to better components and gold plating. Also many of the advances new ones have I don't need like component and such.

So if you know the hierarchy please post or if there is a good on-line resource... I will update this first post for others that are in the same boat.

At random for now...

Yamaha RX V1

You may want to check the back issues of some on line pubs like hometheatrehifi.com for reviews Also, I have been noticing that many of the manufacturers have information such as user manuals, reviews etc on their legacy equipment.
You might be able to find a Yamaha RX-V1 for a $1000 or so whihc was their flagship modle a couple years ago.

If you tell us what your budget is, we can recommend used models.
That is a great resource Tom, thanks. I'm going to burn a lot of time on this one I can feel it already :) . My Promedia's are ready for retirement so it's a worthy cause.
