    Best Receiver for Fluance AV-HTB??

    I'm getting Fluance AV-HTB speaker, so I'm trying to decide what receiver I should get.
    I narrowed down to Denon AVR-1604, Yamaha RX-V450, and Onkyo TX-SR 502.
    My budget is around 200-300.

    Which one do you guys think is best for the speaker??

    and.. is it OK to get a less powerful receiver than the speaker?(for example, Fluance speaker's output power is 100W, and yamaha or Onkyo's receiver power are around 80-90W)

    Also, Can I hook up 5 channel speaker to 6.1 channel receiver??

    One more question, is there any difference in sound quality among these receiver companies??

    Any of thsoe receievers will do fine. Yes 6.1 capable receivers will work fine with only 5 speakers. And yes it is ok if the receievers output power is a little less than what the speaker can handle. I suggest you add Marantz and Harman Kardon to your list. I know marantz has pre-outs, although I doubt you'll need them. All the receievers you and I listed will sound very similar if not exactly the same.
