hey there, i need a receiver, well actually my dad needs a receiver as just i just but my rotel. he's looking for one thats about 600 or so. This is in canada btw. he has a pair of JBL 310 norbridge series he baught about 1 year ago. his receiver is 10 years old.. its a sony. no pro logic no nuttn, just a stereo receiver. since JBL are bright speakers i think he should go with an onkyo, or denon, but i think those are outa his price range. any suggestions? thanx!

The JBL's would be better with H/K, Marantz or Pioneer. Paired to a Denon or Yamaha IMO would be like a cat screeching.

I don't what the pricing is like in Canada, but a Marantz Sr-5400 is very good value. Good power supplies and build quality.

I second that My Rantz..Nad would be nice as well if the budget would allow it. Pioneer just released the 1014 model which sells for $475 here in the U.S, this would be a nice combo

Sure there are. In Van you can go to Commercial Electronics (both NAD/Marantz) or Sound Plus (NAD).

I have the Kenwood Sovereign VR 5700 which is quite nice, I picked on up for $480 on ecost.com. The Pioneer 1014 would be a great match as well. i have not heard the Kenwood you mention but i would stick to their Sovereign line if you go Kenwood.

I would stay away from Yamaha or Denon with the JBL northridge series.
