I am hoping that someone can give me a good recomendation for a receiver to go with my new panasonic 58s1 plasma. unfortunately it only has an optical digital output. the only thing that i have hooked up is my ps3 which is used for all my dvd, bd, and gaming needs. i mostly watch sd tv but want the sound to be louder than the stock speakers while watching and i want something that sounds good with my games and movies also. i am limited by a tight budget of about 250.00-300.00 due to a recent layoff. i would also love to have a viera link type of function if possible. i dont know too much about new receivers or what i need, ive read alot of the forums here and have a very basic idea of whats needed but thought i would ask anyway. any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
