looking for a good receiver for about $300 shipped. i dont mind refurbished or last years model. if it is still up to date. i dont have any brand preferance and i will mostly likley be using 6.1 bookshelf type speakers in a 14'X 16' room. basicly hooking it up to an HDTV box DVD player and a playstation.
I purchased an H/K avr 230 from ebay for 280 inc shipping and have been very happy with it. Warm powerful sound, tons of features and great looks. I have a similair sized room and run athena speakers, sounds great.
