Thanks to some incredible online deals, I was able to finish putting together a very nice set of speakers I otherwise would not have been able to afford.
All my outputs are Polk. I have two VM30s for the fronts, a VM20 for the center channel, and 4 VM10s for the surround and rear speakers. I'm very happy with these wonderful speakers. I also have a Polk sub.
But I have a problem. I need a better receiver, and I'd like to try to find a really good deal on it as well. I guess I am hoping to get something from Marantz (1st chioce if I can afford it) or Denon, but I'm open to other brands as well (such as Onkyo, Yamaha, and Pioneer). I suppose a ballpark figure I had in my head would be $600 to $1000, but I am hoping to find a bargain on an AVR similar to what I found for my speakers. I need a 7.1 AVR obviously. I will be using this HT setup for both movies and gaming, and I'd like to have HDMI inputs and 1080p switching for my PC, PS3 (pulls double duty as my Blu-ray player), and 360. Any suggestions for a nice receiver for what I have? Thanks.
