Hello, I am currently in the process of remodeling my backyard with a basketball court and patio area. I just finished purchasing a set of HF12 rock outdoor speakers - http://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/oshfulperosp1.html using 175W per speaker. I am looking for a solid receiver in the ~$100 price range to push these two speakers. I am not currently using a subwoofer but hope to be adding one soon. Although I will only be using two channels, I may add rear speakers and a center channel in the future so a 5.1 receiver would be ideal. Would a 5.1 receiver bridging the two extra channels work well? What receiver in the given price range would work best to power these speakers efficiently. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

I don't think $100 is doable for a decent AVR, however Circuit City has the Sherwood RD6500 on sale for $129.95 and it should work for you.

My suggestion is craigslist. People are always upgrading, and you can get something pretty good for $100. Just checking my local craigslist there were 2 fairly new $100 receivers that were 5.1 or more and quite a few for under $150.

Fry's puts the Onkyo 304 on sale for $99. It was that price 2 weekends ago.


ShopOnkyo has it on sale refurbs for $99 and its actually $89 when you sign up for Club Onkyo because you get an extra $10 off on your first purchase using the rewards points. And it might be even cheaper than that because they're having a 10% off sale from May 22-29 for Club Onkyo members.
