    most brand names are pretty good.

    They are quite competitive within their respective price classes and you reallly can't go worng. It just might come down to which features you need and/or want. There's no shame in that.

    I prefer my Marantz to my Onkyo, but the onkyo (TX-SV646) is 9 years old and still kicking.
    Listen to a couple and make sure they have the features you want. Pick what sounds good to you and has the features you want.

    Thanks, I am looking a receiver to power at least 2 100+ W floor speakers and a 150W subwoofer (planning to get a Harmon Kardon or Bose woofer).
    I'm not just looking something for light listen, I want some thing to revv up King Kong on.

    What speakers book shelf or floor would you recommend, I am thinking a 5.1 surround system, but think I'll start with the 2 front, centre and subwoofer then later the other 2.

    If you have a budget for the two front and center speakers and a subwoofer, you might want to state it. Don't keep making us play guessing games. It quickly becomes tiresome.

    think about what you just said. Note the appearance of the word "woofer" twice.

    so, how much for the pair of speakers?

    Does that include a center speaker or not? yes or no

    How much for a subwoofer?

    you are not helping yourself. We know you are buying a pair of speakers, a center channel speaker and a Sub. Just give a budget for each of those. Your are not very consistent in what you are saying...
