Just got a new pair of M60's. What recommendations are there for a stereo receiver? I will not be running a sub. Budget is under $1000 US.
I also may just by a stereo amp and listen to CD's only for now; so any suggestions on an amp is appreciated as well.
I listened to a NAD stereo amp and cd player(not their high end stuff) with two PSB towers(T55?), no sub, and it sounded pretty good. Anyone using NAD? Thanks.

What Wid suggested. I have two of them and for the coin, you can't beat them.

Or, you could pick up a quality used receiver for $100-200. With so many people upgrading to new formats there are lots of good units to be had.

A Yamaha RX-V3300 works well for me. IMO,Yamaha AV receivers have simple controls, and lots of clean power.

Welcome to the M60's club!

Danny, welcome. If you're pretty certain that this isn't going to expand into a surround setup in the reasonably near future I'd agree with the HK3490 that Rick suggested. You might also, however, consider getting a multi-channel HT receiver which can do a good job in stereo at this time and has the ability to support future expansion.

If your budget is under 1K, then any of the Denon Stereo receivers fall into that group. Like John mentioned, any AV receiver will do a great job for music listening and open the door for future options.

Lee, "outstanding stereo performance" is no problem. Driving two speakers is easier than driving more and the same standard for audibly flawless amplification, i.e., flat frequency response from 20Hz-20KHz with inaudibly low noise and distortion applies regardless of how many speakers are involved. There's no mysterious factor which somehow requires a different standard in a stereo setup.

There're many fine HT receivers that qualify from Denon, Onkyo and others. A particularly good buy at this time is the factory refurb Onkyo 706 for $450 from Accessories4less .
