    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Okay, so after much discussion in this thread and this poll I got my speakers ordered. So now it's time to discuss AVR's. The same guidelines still apply: Not looking to spend a ton, but I don't have very high expectations either, so that's okay. I want to get an AVR that's sufficient to get...
