    Im going to be getting some Fluance, you probibly don't know who they are so if you don't don't comment about it, speakers. It's going to be a 5.1 setup. Recommended power is 20-200wrms. Im looking for something that will put atleast 70 in a 5.1 setup. Refurbs are ok, price is a big factor. I will not be using this for HDTV, so I don't need high bandwidth video switching. It will mainly just be for music/dvd's/X-Box. So can anyone help me out?

    Its around 400 dollars I believe. As for it putting out 70w x 5 channels with all channels being driven simultaniously with bandwidth of 20hz to 20khz at less than 1 percent distortion, I doubt it. But no reciever in that price range will put out that kind of power...

    The 1603 puts out 80 watts x 5 it's a nice little receiver. It can also be found online for less then $400. :bigthumb:

    I found one that does. Kenwood VR-6070. I've seen 3 tests where it drives 5.1 w/ all channels @ 93wattrms. At under 1% distortion. Plus I don't need Video Switching, no HDTV. I just need something I can plug my Fluance speakers, Adire Shiva Sub, X-Box, Dvd Player, and TV to.
