    Confused between Denon or Yamaha options for a mid-range receiver...

    Great feedback, please keep it coming. Thank you! Good point. If I really only use it on setup, that's valid. However, if I am going to see ugly text come up any time I switch inputs or if I'll want to tweak settings regularly, I'd like a nice GUI. I don't know if that's the case. A nice...

    Confused between Denon or Yamaha options for a mid-range receiver...

    Thanks! I'd only been looking at Yamaha and Denon due to past experience and reviews. I'll look at this Pioneer. It is nice that it comes with the cables that others charge you for. How does the audio quality compare?

    Confused between Denon or Yamaha options for a mid-range receiver...

    Okay, I decided that I should give more info on the models I'm looking at to better relay my confusion.... Features I don't care about which may affect the price of some of these include HD Radio and Sirius integration. The Denon's seem to have more streaming options in the networked...

    Center channel speaker location?

    Where to find basic speaker mounting brackets?

    Indeed, thanks! I searched and couldn't find them. I bought that off your link just to have around. I had not seen those so ended spending $60 on this pointpoint bracket instead; Amazon.com: Pinpoint AM-40 Side Clamping Bookshelf Speaker Wall Mounts - Black...

    Where to find basic speaker mounting brackets?

    Radio Shack used to sell these simple speaker mounting brackets which worked great. It was a flat piece of metal that you'd screw in the wall with the bottom edge bent up with a couple teeth on it. You would attach the inverse of this to the back of the speaker. It was simple, cheap...
