Wow, my first forum. I'm old school I admit it- gray hair and all. I'm installing my new entertainment center very soon and want to replace my speakers and receiver. I mostly play my old vinyl and just some CD's. I like the specs on the M22 v2 bookshelf speakers (they fit in the ent. center just right and am lookin for a receiver that will work well with the M22 v2's and will be good for the vinyl and allow me to switch over to surround for movies. How about some input? bobby O

Welcome to the forum Bobby O. Pick a reciever based on the features you want and the connectivity you require HDMI, component, etc.

Good advice DG

I would highly doubt that you would notice much difference between any of the avr manufacturers mentioned on these boards, so as DG said just pick the one that has the price and features that you want and remember the M22s are quite efficient so high wattage is not required, anything near or around 100W/ch is usually sufficient for most listening levels.

Bobby, welcome. As the previous replies indicated, modern well-designed HT receivers power the M22s well. Choose on the basis of features and price. One feature that would be of particular importance to you, since you play LPs, is a phono input which properly amplifies the very low voltages from the cartridge. Many receivers no longer include a phono input, and although separate plug-in phono pre-amplifiers are available, it's convenient to have one built-in. One of the receivers that you might consider with a phono input and which is an excellent buy overall is the Onkyo 705 factory refurb which is available(if you're in the U.S.)from Accessories4less for about $480.

That's really what these forums are all about, don't you think?

Oh, hey, 9800. Took me long enough.

Anyone with, oh, about 1000 posts can pretty much be called a pro at it by then.
