Denon 650-Watt 5.1-Channel 3D Home Theatre Receiver (DHT-391XP) : Receiver-Based All-In-One Systems - Best Buy Canada
Onyko 680-Watt 5.1-Channel Receiver Home Theatre System (HT-S3300) : Receiver-Based All-In-One Systems - Best Buy Canada
Yamaha 600-Watt 5.1-Channel Receiver Home Theatre System (YHT3045HD) : Receiver-Based All-In-One Systems - Best Buy Canada
Hm... Those don't look too bad, actually, especially that Denon set. I'm not really up to getting that Onkyo as it uses a passive subwoofer, and I'm not interested in the Yamaha as the previous Yamaha set I bought had a faulty subwoofer and receiver.
Would it really be better to get that system over the speaker and receiver set that I picked? It is cheaper, that's for sure, but I was under the impression that only a basic receiver is needed, and the sound quality depends largely on the speakers that you get (well, given that the receiver meets their requirements).
