Fried my reciever- what to replace it with?


Neal Richards
My roomate fried my sony str-de525, so im fiding myself in the market for a new reciever.

This will be used for about 20% cd player music (stero in), 60% music from computer (5.1 or 6.1 in), and 20% DVDs.

The price range is $100 for a rough replacement, $150 for something superior. Im looking at ebay and refurbished- so this is probably the $200-300 new price range.

Ones ive seen... far...
sony de845 on ebay for about $125
de545 for about $100

What looks best of those... any other reccomendations?

BTW, this will be powering two fairly large klh speakers with 12in woofer in fronts, and a fairly low quality aiwa center/back combo, and connected to an audio source 150watt sub.

Sherwood makes Dolby Digital channel receivers for under $100. Pioneer makes one of $150 that should be superior to the Sony.

Otherwise keep looking at refurbs.
