Regarding the Pioneer receiver, it's an ideal fit for me as it has a USB
port so I can hook up my laptop and a external hard drive which has 240GBs
of full bitrate WAV file music burned from my cd and album collection which
I can play like a jukebox through Windows Media Player. Also, the receiver
has a built in RF Demodulator for AC3 laserdisc playback and overall, has
excellent, warm sound and is extremely versatile.
I also highly recommend the Denon dvd player as it plays and outputs both
NTSC and PAL video without the need of an external video decoder and with a
Flash upgrade available at some online sites, can be made region free.
Basically, I can view any dvd from any part of the world. It also plays all
the audiophile formats like SACD and DTS audio.
My speaker setup is a bit of overkill considering the size of my living
