Help me pick a receiver to buy with my Yamaha NSP106

I just ordered the Yamaha NSP106 Speaker Package - Silver
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pr...ngid=EN&dept=10

I'm having trouble trying to find out what receiver to buy. I'm looking at the best bang for my money.

1. Panasonic SA-XR25 from London Drugs $199.99

2. Yamaha HTRS5730S Dolby Digital Receiver $199.99
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/prodde ... EN&dept=10

3. Sony STR-DE597 Dolby Digital Receiver $199.99
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/prodde ... EN&dept=10

4. Panasonic SAXR30S Dolby Digital Receiver $189.99
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/prodde ... EN&dept=10

5. Harman/Kardon AVR130 Dolby Digital Receiver $199.99
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/prodde ... =EN&dept=0


The harmon kardon is a little more than I want to spend.

This under the assumption that I can get all of them.

I have cancle my order at futureshop on the Logitech Z560 Computer Speakers :( . I can't afford them and the receiver. On the other hand I can just wire up my computer to one of these receivers if I can get one.


Anyone got advice :)

I'd choose
1. H/K
2. Yamaha
3. Panasonic
4. Sony

This is in order of sound quality and features per buck. The Sony has a lot of features, but the sound is very so-so.

1. Yamaha
2. Panasonic XR25 over the XR30

Avoid the HK and Sony DE. I haven't been very pleased with HK's lack of quality control for the past while. Sony DE is very mass market oriented.

I got these on order from FS so I can't wait to test them. I also picked up the 5 piece Pro-Linear speakers from AB Sound for $97. Gonna test them both out and see which one performs better and return the other one

The SA-XR25 is probably my number 1 choice, I would get the H/K if it was only 199.00.
