this my first post here.
I just bought a pair of R15 from outpost. I am planning to use it for the front speaker. Since I listen to music more than watching movies, I am looking for a decent home theatre receiver under $200, given the fact that I am sharing a house with others. The room is about 14X18.
I am thinking buying a HT receiver instead of stereo one, because I have a set of off-brand speakers (from those cheap HT set, the DVD/amp is broken, the sub is un-powered).
I have read some reviews about onkyo 502 (refurb one is about 180) and Pioneer 514 (new about 180). I am eager to know which one has better musical performance. If you know there are better choices in the range, please let me know.
BTW, I notice there is Pioneer 515. I wonder what's the difference between 514 and 515.
Thanks in advance.
