Sub 500EUR receiver?


Hello everyone! I have started to look into building a home cinema in the coming months. A big upgrade from my old 1080p 50" dumb TV and its speakers!

My budget is very limited, 1500EUR or less and I need:

  • Projector
  • Screen
  • 5.1 Speakers
  • Cabling
  • Receiver
I am looking at budget models for everything. Going for a 1080p no frills projector, a decent receiver and some speakers.
I would prefer to put more money for a good center speaker and spend less for everything else.

Basically looking for a receiver with a couple of inputs, mainly for my Android TV box, not something that will last decades because technology evolves.

This is my first time messing with this kind of AV equipment so I really have no idea. Any recommendations?

Denon AVR-X1600H can be found for less than 500 euros. I own the x2700h which is a bit more powerfull and supports 8k(not that I need it), and I am happy with it.
