Ok, I am looking at getting an inexpensive AVR for my sister. Currently she is using a pair of Dayton B652's on an old Aiwa 4.1 receiver of mine. The plan is to flesh out a 5.1 Dayton system with the C452, a pair of the B452's and maybe even a SUB-1000 if she'll agree to it.

Right now I am looking at three models from accessories4less in the $150 range. Just wondering if anyone had some thoughts on any of these models.
DENON AVR-S510BTl

ONKYO TX-SR353

PIONEER VSX-531

They each have very similar specs. The Denon does have two sub outputs, but it is 10 less WPC, and it cost $10 more. I don't think we would use the duel sub out in her setup anyway. All she really needs is a descent receiver with HDMI switching, nothing fancy.
Right now I am leaning towards the Pioneer because I've heard good things about them and it's on sale for $140 right now.


So what are your thoughts? Is there any reason to get one of these receivers over the other? Is there something I should know about a certain brand or model? It's been awhile since I bought a mainstream receiver, I'm more into higher end gear now.

The Yamaha RXV-381 (new A stock not refurbished) @ $199 is a great buy.  Note that the reliability of Yamaha AVRs is the best in the industry and is the only AVR that is HDMI/HDCP certified.
