A/V receiver

by pcw562001 / May 16, 2006 6:48 AM PDT

I NEED HELP! I bought a BOSE AM series 10 system 5.1) and now I am planning on buying a receiver. I would like to use the receiver for my ipod (pics and sound),XM radio, future HDMI compatability, and for DVDs. I do not care so much for games. The 2 receivers I have narrowed it down to are the yamaha rx v2600 ( or denon 3806 (
So I would like to know which one would be best suit my needs? Any professional help would be greatly appreciated!

Good shopping,

My Denon is good but...

My Denon receiver sounds fine and had the features I was looking for at a reasonable price -- but it's very awkward to use. For example, why do I have to locate a remote to lower the volume in Zone 2? If the remote is intended to be the primary means of controlling the unit, fine -- so then why do I have to use the front panel to set the Zone 2 source back to the main source? At least it has a stark, but functional on-screen display and menu that mitigate the shortcomings of the rest of the controls.

Just bought an Onkyo receiver

I know I have been hanging out on this forum for some time trying to absorb some of the knowledge you guys have (and thanks to you all) and I finally made my first purchase. The SR703B had the features I was looking for and I bought it from an authorised dealer online for $539 total. Onkyo comes with a 2 year warranty. Decided not to pay the extra for hdmi with that technology in such a state of change. Looked at receivers up to $1100 but dedided to spend the extra on better speakers. Looing hard at Aperion. Now I am trying to figure out this cable buisness.

CONGRATS ON THE ONKYO (nice receiver.)

I'VE NEVER HEARD OF "APERION" speakers. Are they a regional brand only? All I've seen is their web-site says PORTLAND OR. Tell me more...........

Look at the reviews on cnet of several Aperion speakers. Go to to look at their products. They sell direct to the customer by internet. I have made a couple of calls to them and they have a very knowledgeable staff.

I don't want to because it makes me sound wishy-washy but I feel I should set the record straight. After tallking to several (three) speaker reps I cancelled the onkyo 703 order and ordered a pioneer 1015. All three recommended the pioneer and two said it would do a better job with their speakers (one pair was 4 ohm). They weren't selling receivers. My choice had come down to those two receivers and their comments revesed my decision. It didn't hurt that the pioneer was cheaper but that had little to do with my decision a that point.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
