    Hi

    I'm pretty new to all this home cinema stuff and was wondering wheather anyone could help me find a decent av receiver for £200


    *my main use for the system will be movies and sky tv

    *I will be using it at least 6-7 hours a day, so please warn me to avoid any system that are prone to over heat

    *my living room is fairly small so I dont really need a system that is built for a stadium

    have been using a pioneer vsx-d511 for about 5mths, very happy with it;the amp has dolby prologic, prologic 2,dolby digital, dts, & virtual suround back & other dsp modes plus stereo, more than enough really; we use the amp in our small/medium sized lounge, have had no problems with overheating,(advisable not to place another component on top of this amp for ventilation purposes so could be a problem if you lack space in your t.v unit?

    i originally purchased a one boxed integrated dvd/receiver at the start of 2003 but found connectivity lacking so switched to the vsx-d511; the newer model d512 has been reduced to £139.99 +£7.99at empire direct, a bargain to be had..
