XM Satellite Radio-Ready Digital Home Theater Receiver $511.99 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...t&productCategoryId=cat03031&id=1108125945988 These are some of the receivers i have been looking at in adds. I will have to see them in person to make sure that they have 5 speaker inputs of the style i need, which is bare speaker wires with no jacks on them. The components that will be hooked to the receiver are: 1. DirecTV DVR Box 2. Lite-On DVD Recorder/Player 3. Samsung 56" DLP Rear Projection TV 4. Xbox 5. PSTwo 6. 2 Boston Accoustics floor speakers and 3 Infinity Surround Sound speakers I would really like one that upconverts from composite to S Video or component as all of them currently have composite cables. Any suggestions or insite from the experts here is greatly appreciated. I just want to make sure i get the best bang for the buck and am looking to stay around the $500 and under range.
