A little overwhelmed, looking for guidance

Hi Guys. Noob here looking for some advice. I'm not sure that I am in the right place as I the first thing I see on the "entry level" page is a guy with a budget of 15k for a stereo system. But, maybe you guys can point me in the right direction. I have a pair of Pioneer CS-A700s right now mated up to a Technics SA-303. I am looking for a receiver that will make better use of the speakers. I am looking mainly on CL, in the $200-300 range. I am also looking for a second set of speakers that will go well with the whole package. I think the setup I have now sounds decent, but I have been told that the receiver is the weak link right now. Any suggestions? Should I be looking on another forum? Thanks for the input

-Jake

Outlaw Audio or more within your budget Harmon Kardon, especially their factory seconds.

Speakers? Not within your budget. Closets thing would be something like a good used pair of Klipsch Heresy II or III.

Maybe SM or JA has something collecting dust they can sell you.

I'd second the Harman Kardon outlet; the Harman Kardon
HK 3485-Z is $230.

Your question will get a far more comprehensive answer from the guys at www.audiokarma.org they specialize in vintage gear. They will be familiar with a lot of stuff on CL. I'm a member myself.
