Im looking to buy a new receiver fairly soon. I get sony and yamaha receivers close to cost due to a new vendor at my work. What would you guys suggest? Id like something that has Ipod compatability and id like a sub channel(at least outputs so i can run an external amp). I am a newbie to home audio so any help is much appreciated.

Well, id like to spend less than 400 if possible. Thats before the "at cost" tho. So whatever you would buy for $400

Not necessarily. What would multi channel be used for? I just need left, right and sub. Id like to use a yamaha or a sony if possible because i get a great deal on them

that is the setup i have. its 2.1. I used a yamaha, HK, and onkyo. the Yamaha was nice. alot of 2 channel receivers have a sub output now

just go on the website and look at stereo receivers. make sure they have a sub output and other features you want. I do suggest getting a 5.1 channel receiver so you have the extra chennels if you decide to do more than left,right and sub

Did you read the posts? Also, the reviews on that receiver seem to be horrible.

Ok well i guess im between the V463 and v465. I dont need 7 channels. Its pretty much just going to be for audio, not a whole lot of video so it doesnt need to be fancy.
