Jensen speakers/receiver

I just purchased the set of Jensen speakers that Circuit City has on sale for $99.99 this week. They looked good for the price. Anyway, I need help on a receiver. I was going to buy one of the low-level receivers for $199 but the guy said that the amp wasn't good enough and that I would need to buy one for $299 or higher. Can anyone give me some advice? I really don't know which one to buy and I can only spend about $300. It is for a dorm room to hook to my Playstation2 for DVD's. Are there any places online that have good prices? Any advice would be helpful.

In that price range the easy choice for me is the Onkyo SR-500. I own the 2000 version of this receiver and it has great sound and a good amount of clean power. I recommend it highly over the $200 receivers I see in most stores.

As for online/mail order shopping try calling J&R. Or try onecall.com They have the SR-500 for $269 including shipping.

In the future when you buy speakers don't buy them for HOW GOOD THEY LOOK but far more for HOW GOOD THEY SOUND!

Yeah, just stick with Onkyo or Yamaha for receivers in that range and you can't go wrong.
