My Ride: Suburban LT 4x4
I would buy rears before I replaced the receiver. I would also replace or add a powered sub before I replaced the receiver. I would also buy a power amp before I replaced the receiver.

What's a good quality reciever? I used to sell audio many moons ago and HK's were pretty decent, but I remember Denon was a good reciever too. Are they still pretty good? Again, this has been about 4 years since I've looked at home audio. 80% home theater/DVDs, 20% music. Speakers it will be powering/signaling, B&W 602 S2's, polk audio center,Velodyne 10" sub. Will be adding rears later. I'm looking to stay spend around 500-700.00. Thanks to those who can help!
If you still want to replace the receiver, I would recommend Marantz over Denon (they are sisters) and I would NOT recomment Harman Kardon.
