I have been more than satisfied with my Pioneer equipment.

I'm a big Pioneer fan, but in that price range, I'd get the Onkyo TX-SR706 (might cost you $100 - $150 more, depending). I think it's a much better receiver in terms of sound and features. It's also a Recommended Buy from Sound and Vision Magazine.

Thanks Stew!

I install Onkyo and Intergra receivers almost daily and they by far are the best bang for the buck. We as a company dropped Sony a few years ago because there quality went to crap. We use B&K for our high end systems but they are a little on the spendy side. I can't stress enough to you how easy the onkyo are to set up and use and the sound IS very good for it's price point.
