Home theatre receivers

Recommended Posts

HT is expensive. I would check out accessories4less.com for a receiver. I have typically ran Onkyo's, but my roommate picked up a Marantz from there and it is great! As far as amplifiers go I'm not too familiar. Also take a look at www.audiogon.com. Kind of like an eBay for high end audio.

Ive always wanted to build a sick home theatre system and i was just wondering what brands are better. Also i have a nice sub thats needs some juice. ive searched and cant really find high powered amps for hometheatre.

To me, a "sick" home theater isn't receiver-based; it's seperates based.

Home audio/theater IS expensive; like any other avenue, quality costs.

----------

When it comes to A/V receivers, everybody has different brands they like...

...I like Pioneer Elite or Denon; someone may like Onkyo or Sony.

Also, what kind of sub do you have???

...if you are trying to use a car audio woofer, I don't recommend it (one of the "things" involved with home theater is "looks; and, a large non-finished cabinet sticks out like a sore thumb); I would look into SVS, Velodyne, or certain ones made by certain speaker manufacture.

On a side note, I'm selling some speakers (no subwoofer):

They make "plate-amps" (that are meant to be installed into the subwoofer cabinet).

Those are just the Dayton ones; you can also find one's made/supplied by driver manufacturers. I own an Adire Audio Rava home subwoofer. Adire made drivers (Shiva/DPL12) that was used in the Rava; as well as, their plate amp

Dayton's cabinets; you can also build one.

What driver is that???

hey bolt! As usually I got the hook up my friend! My friend john's work is selling a whole bunch of crown mono blocks that are used for cheap. I think the 1k model is like $350 or so. I'm getting one for my home theatre as well.

The driver i have i dont really know what it is. lol. Ive been told its a LMS 4k and a Tc sounds LMT. Its a 3 ohm SVC.

There are many good receivers out there. I personally like Onkyo, just because I believe they have some great features and quality for the money. Like another poster mentioned, Pioneer Elite and Denon are very good. I will second the options at Parts Express. The home theater sub I built uses the Dayton High Fidelity series driver and I chose the Dayton 500W plate amp. They both have performed flawlessly for 3 years now. You can check out other equipment they offer at http://www.parts-express.com. Good luck with your search.
