Good receiver for LG theater system.?
I have an LG home theater system and the DVD receiver has crapped out, but the speakers still work. I have a DVD player that i can use but i need a receiver for the speakers.
it is a 5.1 speaker system with a 400 watt sub woofer and 5 stand speakers that are 40 watts each.
Can anyone recommend a good receiver that is fairly cheap. (i live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada)
thanks for the help!!

Best Answer

The DVD player/control unit of an all-in-one home theatre package system represents over 90% of the value of the package. Do yourself a favour, and toss it all out, and start from scratch. Buy a name-brand receiver, separate DVD player, and a set of real speakers. Look at a set of small speakers by Energy, PSB, Image, etc. These are Canadian companies that make speakers and nothing but speakers, and they know what they’re doing. For your electronics, look to the good Japanese companies–Marantz, Denon, Harman/Kardon, maybe Yamaha. Don’t buy crap. You get what you pay for. The cheap stuff breaks.
