    I have just acquired an ex-demo Celestion AVP305 sub/sat system and need a receiver to drive them. I have a budget of up to £300 and would like some recommendations (especially from anyone who has these speakers).

    well - as already stated other times - IMO at the £300 range (and given you're not too fond of church/hall/stadium/lavatory DSP modes!!!) nothing beats the raw performance of the Cambridge Audio 540r @ £250 (leaving £50 for cabling).

    Had a look at the specs of those celestions & the 540r will drive them with ease - but you'll only know once you try it!
