Hawk, Your opinions!!


Hawk, Please help me!!

Please better receiver for me JBL Speakers 160SI, under $500.

I just have a family room 10'*10'.

This is not Hawk but I hope you don't mind...
I have heard different variations of receivers combined with the JBL160.
For the mass market areas, I liked the Onkyo TXSR600 for $499, there is also the TXSR500 for $299, main diffrence being the 500 is 5 channels and the 600 is capable of 6 channels and DTS-ES.
There is also the Yamaha RX-V630 which sounded great for HT and sounded great with the JBLs.
There is Denon AVR 1803 which is capable of 6.1 DTS-ES for $499.
Sony STR-DE995S, capable of DTS-ES, NEO:6 and such for $499, with a great remote.
There is also the new Philips FR999 capable of recording audio from DVDs for $399...I have no knowledge of its reliablity though, but it seems pretty good for the price.
Kenwood KRF 9070d...I believe the US equivalent is 7080 for$395...with THX certification, although to some is not a requirement.

I'm sure there are a lot of people who will abhor this suggestions, but then again these are only suggestions. And I think, these are great receivers for the money.
