View Full Version : help with a receiver

12-24-2005, 03:53 PM
My dad gave me 2 floor speakers, I dont know what you actually call them but they each have a tweeter, mid range, and sub in them. He told me to run at least 100-200 watts to each speaker, if not more.

I need to find a decent receiver that isnt a whole lot, preferably below $100. I dont know anything about which receivers are good and which arent, and I dont even know where to begin searching for them. Would prefer a CD receiver but it doesnt even matter, as long as it has RCA inputs I dont even care.

Do you know what kind of speakers they are? brand/model?

For under $100, your best bet is ebay. I don't know of any new sub $150 receivers that are any good.

Here are some suggestions:

your welcome. Just make sure that seller is reputable before purchasing anything. if you would feel safer buying a new receiver from a reputable store than here you go:

if your still looking for a reciever, i have a Sony STR-D715 It is surround sound OR stereo, i have it running stereo, but i just got a new reciever, so im not in need of this anymore, works like a champ, sounds great, its 100w x2 channels.

I dont know the specs off hand, you could look em up, here is a pic of what it looks like:

i would part with it for fairly cheap i guess, as it is like 10 yrs old., but it is a great little reciever, back when sony didnt **** as much :)

you only need a stereo reciever (2 channel)

i have been fighting with my denon 3805 for two days trying to get the multi zone setup right. i am a very loyal denon guy though. i have one that is about 8-10 years old, wont ever sell it. best 2 channel receiver i own.
