I have been shopping for a new receiver with surround sound. I have an old (and I mean old) rack system that has to go. I was told do NOT ever buy an all in one system (with cd/dvd, etc). So I'm looking for an affordable reciever with 6 speakers for a large living room. I looked at Onkyo HT-S670 (can't find reviews online) and the S760. ALso looked at a JVC, but I believe it was an all in one. Looking to keep this under $500. Do I go with a 5.1 or 6.1???Can anyone help me out here???
Here is an excellent deal at vanns.com that I picked up a little while ago... a little over your spending limit but not much...
Onkyo TX-SR502B Onkyo SKS-HT240 6.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System
If Purchased Separately: $799.98 Total Savings: - $235.02 Your Bundle Price: $564.96 (free shipping)
I have found nothing but great reviews for each model included (do a search with google for each component listed above, you will see man links to reviews and recommendations). I hooked it up and it sound great for both music and movies.
