Ok, I am overloaded with choices. I have $500. to spend and would like to stay away from HTIAB. Without starting a war I need at least optical, PLII, no seperate amp, and 5.1 input. HK/ Yamaha? Pioneer? Help me make this choice clear as mud.

Any Denon. The 2802 can be had for around $550.00 now. The street price of the 1802 is about $400.00.

Good Luck,

Check out the Sony line, both BB and CC carry them, but I would get it online not retail at those two!


The DE-975 and DE-1075 can be had for under 500 bucks. The Denons would be better but going with Sony's lower line you'll get a cheaper price..

Be careful buying Denon over the internet or from any non-authorized dealer. According to their website, they don't honor the warranty if not purchased from an authorized dealer. Unless you get a steal or are really comfortable with the dealer you purchase from, I would consider looking into a brick and mortar authorized dealer. Most authorized dealers don't advertise less than MSRP prices, however, but if you show up at the store, you can typcially get a decent deal.


Just my $0.02.

I'm in the market for a reciever too.


J&R ( www.jandr.com ) has the HK AVR320 for $500 plus $28 shipping. They are an Authorized HK dealer. In case you didn't know, it has pre-amp ins and outs for all channels, all the current surround modes except DD-EX, and are one of the few Manufacturers that actually output the power they advertise to all channels (Outlaw may be another, but no DPII).
