    What Receiver Should I Get???
    Hi guys, I need some expert advice. (sorry if this is in the wrong forum)

    I just purchased the following speaker package (Onkyo SKS-HT240):

    I've read and heard that this speaker package is one of the top low-end packages out there. I got the entire thing for $350.

    Now I need a good, affordable 6.1 channel receiver that will put my "good" speaker system to use. I've done some research and I'd like to keep it under $250.

    Please help me!! Thanks! :D

    I would like to hear HK with my Klipsch speakers and lot's of guy's like HK brand for their true power ratings.
    Audiogon is a place that sells used stuff if you don't mind, I have bought a couple things there before, just make sure they have good feedback.

    what is your budget? the best way to select the receiver for you is by making use of your own ears. i suggest you audition denon and marantz. these 2 brands covers almost all other brands. all brands great for ht would sound like a denon while all brands great for music listening would sound more like a marantz.
