  1. Any other suggestions?
  2. bump
  3. There's nothing that comes close to what the Take 5s provide at $200. Now if you increase your budget, there will be a lot more options.
  4. this looks like a great receiver:

    I can spend a little over $900, this one is only $419.98 right now
  5. Personally on a $900 budget I would recommend no more than $300 on a receiver, but if you are set on that receiver, I think I can squeeze in something for close to 1k. If you pick up the 507 instead of the 607 you can do it in $900.

    507 for $320.
