Cambridge Audio 540R. -> should be able to get for $800

if HDMI is needed then Denon 2607 -> should be able to get for $1500 or so

great thanks drizt, where in aus is a cheap retail outlet?

do you think the marantz sr5600 would be good for my needs also?

reading a few writeups on the cambridge, they say its difficult to set up and its not n00b friendly :angry:

The Cambridge is considerably better performing than similar priced AVR's however, due to it's substantial power supply and no frills approach.

wat do i need to run 2 towers, 2 rears, and a sub?

5.1??

[/b]

Correct, but I would go 6.1 to add some sort of future proofing.

Granted only a few DVD's are in this format....but this will change.

I'm fairly sure that the Cambridge is a 6.1 receiver and not a 7.1 though.

That's correct, it's 6.1.

what you describe is 4.1 (four speakers + 1 sub)

you will also need a centre speaker to make it 5.1

AND

a rear centre to make it 6.1 OR a pair of side effects speakers to make it 7.1

ok, but a 7.1 receiver will still use the 5 speakers no problems tho?

a bit like having a 5 channel car amp and only using 2 channels if u will?
