    Hi.

    I am buying my first home theatre setup. Right now i am in the market for AV receiver and speakers. I deceided to buy a middle class receiver. I found these receivers in local shops:

    Yamaha RX-V630
    Denon AVR-1803
    Onkyo TX-SR600
    Marantz SR 5200

    If there are other alternatives which i missed out, please enlight me.

    My primary goal is good Home Cinema, but receiver will be also used for stereo (music).

    As i said i am total begginer so every advice is welcome.

    Looks like you should go for the Marantz or the Yamaha,i had the 5200 which was great but if you do decide to go for Marantz,try and go for the new 300 series,plenty of improvements have been made in functions and sound quality.
    Looks great in gold too.

    If music is important go for the Marantz (IMO) ... it's significantly better than either the Denon or Yamaha for music and has pre-outs for if you decide later to add a integrated amp to improve music even further.

    Have to agree with you Victoria.

    Marantz stereo perfomance is really detailed and clear.
