    What receiver for home audio/theator?

    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.

    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.

    Re: What receiver for home audio/theator?

    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.
