Sony STRDE 875
Hey all, just been thinking about how I want to start my home theatre setup. Right now all I want is a reciever and two nice speakers to hook up to my computer and CD Deck for gaming and music, but I do know that soon I will be getting a nice TV and a full 5.1 speaker setup so I need a very good AV reciever.
I was looking at some of the Sony line and I found the STRDE875, and I thought it looked like a great reciever. I had also heard that I could get the 845, which is just as powerful, and can be had for much less cash. I was thinking about spending between 250-400 dollars for a reciever, and this fit in the bracket. Of course, the less I spend on the reciever the more I can spend on the speakers and TV, etc etc, so I was just wondering, what are your guys' comments on this reciever. And if anyone has some good suggestions on other recievers in this price range, by all means, tell me.
Also, for the speakers, I was wondering if I should just get some normal bookshelf speakers, or spring for something more expensive which I can use as my front speakers when I upgrade to the 5.1 setup. I am not really sure how much I should spend in this section, but nothing too expensive can be afforded at this time, so I dont know, suggestions here are good too.
Thanx a lot guys, ive been doing some research, and I have some ideas as to what I want, but I just wanted some input from people.
