I'm looking to pick up a new AVR soon, which I find to be one of the hardest to judge pieces of equipment. Stores around here only have 1 reciever hooked up to all the good speakers, then have all the rest of the recievers hooked up to low end systems.
What I'm looking for is an AVR with enough power to drive my system well, but not overkill. Needs to have crossover down to 80Hz and DTS of course, but I don't really need every bell and whistle on the high end models at this point - and 5.1 will be sufficient.
Fronts - RTi6
Center - CSi3
Surround - FXi3
Sub - HSU STF-2
I'd prefer not to spend more than $500 but I can save my pennies for a while if it will make a significant difference. Thanks for the help folks!
