Depending of course on how much power you're looking for, I would recommend the following A-V receivers:

Marantz SR6001 (100w RMS x 7) - $1199.00 list
Marantz SR7001 (110w RMS x 7) $1399.00 list
NAD T754 (90w RMS x 7) $ 999.00 list
Rotel RSX 1057 (75w RMS x 7) $1299.00 list

I have the Marantz SR5600 (90w x 7) and am very pleased (with B&W DM603S3's plus ASW600 sub and M-1 surrounds). You may want also consider Arcam & Denon.

Woops, I presumed you meant an A-V surround sound receiver. Sorry. I thought I was in the Home Theater forum. For two channel, the same brands have good choices as well. Sorry about that.

Marantz SR7001- is this a fairly good receiver for home audio and HT? I really like the specs on this one but i havent heard it, thanks

You might also want to check out this receiver. Smaller company, but known for great service, high-quality, and solid amps for driving difficult speaker loads:

I second the Outlaw brand. They are well worth the money. I'm thinking of selling my Adcom GFR-700 and buying the Outlaw amp and preamp. If you want only a 2 channel receiver check out their receiver (RR2150) for $600. It would sell over $1000 in stores. I've read nothing but good things about it and it has a nice Vintage look to it.
