SORRY, NOTHING COMES TO MIND................

I HATE TO TELL YOU BOSE SPEAKERS ARE NOT HIGHLY REGARDED IN THIS FORUM. THAT BEING THE CASE, ALMOST ANY $350 to $500 A/V RECEIVER SHOULD BE MORE THAN FINE.

Sorry,

River.

For around the same amount of money you would spend for a Bose Acoustimass System ($999 if I am correct) definitive technology has a package for $799 that is far better sounding. Also, if you can afford to do so, buy two tower speakers for your front and not the little cubes. Speakers should be the best part of your audio system. There are some nice Pioneer Elite a/v receivers in the 500-900 price range which have video scaling circuitry, 2-3 zones of audio, built in iPod docking etc. Check all these features and listen to a few different models before buying. Your ears are the best judge of what sounds best for you. Other peoples opinions are just that: opinions not facts.
