  • new receiver

    My plan was to add a amp to my H/K 240 on my downstairs system, but my older H/k upstairs needs to be replaced. I'm going to move the 240 upstairs and wanted to get a more powerful receiver for the downstairs. I will be using it strictly for multi channel music. What receiver with decent power can I get for around $500?

      If you are willing to go used, you can get a killer receiver for that budget.

        Last H/k I bought was refurb. Don't mind that but not sure about buying used without a warranty.

          Thanks Craig. I have been checking out the new H/K's as that's what I have always owned.

            Understood. I just sold an Onkyo 805 for 500 bones and have seen other receivers of comparable quality and features for about that, so I was using it as a point of reference. Some food for thought.

              I usually check on the Onkyo and H/K refurb site to see what's for sale. I'm just looking for a receiver with a good amp section to use for music brand really doesn't matter, but SQ is important.

                Do you need HDMI for your multi channel music?

                These all seem to be of good quality. For 5 hondo, and multi music only, I'd try to get something ROCK solid and a notch above the onkyos and denons etc. You may be way better off going used. You buy something like a Rotel, NAD, etc... you may be happier for longer.

                  Nope no need for HDMI with this system. The NAD looks like it would be a great deal for me. That is what I was thinking since I decided not to go with a added amp, so go with a good receiver with a good amp section.

                  Thanks

                    I don't think for $500 you could do any better than that NAD for sound quality, unless you go used w/o warranty. I know that all my NAD gear has been rock solid and absolutely demolished my mass produced receiver stuff such as HK, denon, yamaha, and onkyo. I've never owned marantz however, but have heard great things... I just don't think it could shipwreck the NAD.

                      Thanks Jethro. I'm going to start doing some serious looking at NAD receivers.

                        Hey, what speakers are you using and what is the size of your room if you don't mind me asking? Do you have a sub?

                          The room is 15wX25L with eight foot ceilings. For speakers I have DefTech BP10's for mains, XCS for center and MFW15 for a sub. For now the rears will be the mirage omnis that were just replaced by X-Omnis.
