Husband wants new receiver for Xmas and already have 2 Bose surround we got as a gift. I listened to the Monitors today powered by a Yamaha 2400. I must say I like the idea of the MCACC (sp?)feature found in the Pioneers. You get some idea of budget here. Also need a sub. Are there other combos I'm missing? I have worn myself out trying to peruse so many opinions for the last week.
