    I'm starting a HT system from scatch and after much homework and a lot of help from the existing posts in this forum, I've decided on a 5.1 Gallo Micro sytem with Powered Sub. However, I'm a little lost when it comes to the reciever. I would like to spend ~$300-400 for 60% HT and 40 % audio to power these little speakers. Right now I'm concidering the NAD T743 or T753. Any recommnedations would be much apprechiated.

    :lease:

    I would guess you live in the US so some of these amps may be differently modeled over there.

    Also worth looking at the Marantz sr4500/5500/7500 (and OSE models) as they are very good with music and movies. The lower end Yamahas are also improved with music and superb movie machines. Rxv 550/650/750 or ax650/750 if you dont want a radio.

    Whichever receiver you end up with I'd recommend checking that it supports a higher frequency crossover than the usual 80hz. The Micros work best with a crossover of either 100 or 120Hz, so make sure the receiver supports it.

    I was happy using a Denon AVR-1803 when I had micros at the front of my setup.

    Cheers

    Martin.

    I've also heard that crossover at either 100 or 120 Hz would get the best sound out of the micros. Thanks for the suggestions.
