Need Receiver for my HTIB


Unregistered guest
I bought the Athena Micra 6 and need a new receiver. I was looking at the following:

On the lower end ($280): Yamaha RX-V450

Mid level ($375):
Pioneer 1014
Devon AVR-1905
Yamaha RX-V650
Harmon Kardon AVR 235

Pioneer 1014 has the most features, but is it too much for a small speaker HTIB? I would use the receiver to listen to TV 50%, watch DVDs 35%, and music 15%. Thanks for you help.

The Pioneer would allow you to grow your system years down the road (read: upgrade the speakers, which is the most common upgrade people do first) without having to upgrade the receiver, so that would be my first choice.

You can also look at the Onkyo 602 for around $300 shipped, it's not the best for music but if that's only 15% use for you then it's a non-issue. Very easy to use and setup too.
