I am going to do a simple two channel setup. I am not really interested in HT, sorround etc. In fact, I will most likely not even have a CD player. I am just going to run off of an Ipod. The only feature that I know I want at this point is to be able to run a 2nd zone.
So, my questions are:
In the world of entry level receivers, is there one out there that is known for being an overachiever?
About the only brand names for such receivers that I have looked at are Onkyo, Yamaha and Denon. Yep, I have been perusing Crutchfield. Any of these stand out as being generally better than the others? Any that I should stay away from?
