I posted this originally in the speaker forum, my apologies. I am looking at buying a few year old receiver. The reason I want to buy older is because I don't have a lot of money and have little to no room/use for 7.1. The bang for the buck theory. IT doesn't have to look pretty, I am more concerned about decent power. I am looking to spend $200 USD give or take. I am going to run AS-B2 as mains and AS-R1 as rear surrounds. An AS-C1 or Yamaha NS-C444 (opinions??) centre and an HSU STF-1 sub. Any help would be much appreciated. My room is approx 330 square feet and open at the back.

For the lowest prices, I'd look for factory refurbished models at ecost.com ot etronics.com, or the B-stock section at hifi.com.


Onkyo TX-SR502 refurb for $163.71 (ecost)
Denon AVR-1604 refurb for $201.90 (ecost)
Panasonic SA-HE75K new for $149.00 (etronics)
Pioneer VSX-D514-K new for $174.99 (etronics)

Other than that, there's also ebay and audiogon.
