    The ones that are half as high as standard receivers like this:

    here

    I only need it to power two bookshelf speakers and it should have enough power to do that. Plus, the size is right. However, I just don't know about the quality of these as in their build quality, and more importantly, how good they can sound compared to the standard size receivers at the same price.

    Quality should be great, it's a Panasonic.

    So because you had reliability problems with different products, the whole company must make unreliable products?

    I havent heard of anyone having any reliability problems with the Slimline Panasonic reicevers.

    Digital receivers are cool and run cool as well :o...I dunno about other conventional receivers, but I could roast marshmellows on mine :o

    I've heard good things about that Panasonic, and it sounds like a good solution to your problem :)

    The new Panasonic XR series receivers are getting rave reviews. They are smaller because of all digital amps.

    I just ordered a XR25S from overstock.com for $140 today. Can't wait to get it and try it out
