I am a newbie and have a small room 17 x 13.
I'm looking for a sound system for my 42" sony lcd.
I have been reading a lot of forums and reviews.

I'm thinking of getting the Yamaha HTR 5760 at etronics for $319
and the Onkyo SKS - HT240 at B&H for $329.

My question is will these two sound good together?
They both got good reviews from other sites that I checked, but I'm not sure what makes a speaker set and receiver work well together. It seems like a good system for $700, is it??? Please help. Don't burn my too bad, like I said I'm pretty new to this. Thanks in advance.

i am a yamaha fan and i would think that with those speakers, you will probably do better with an Onkyo receiver and the speakers. But then again its your ears.

If I were to get an Onkyo receiver to match the features that the Yamaha 5760 has it would have to be the Onkyo 702. That is $700.

i would just like to say one thing (still looking for a similar receiver for HT240 speakers)

be careful if you buy from etronics.com. Its not listed as an authorized Yamaha dealer. Yamaha will not honor the warranty.

Check out the list here:

stick with an onkyo 602 or even 502. I have the 502 and it is great with the speakers. However, for 7.1, you need the 602.. and it has that cool blue light (which, you know, is worth at least another $200 bucks!)
