Putting a new system together on tight budget

I have picked out a TT a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon, a pair of Mordaunt-Short Aviano 2

speakers. My problem is I can"t decide on a receiver. I have it narrowed down to a

CA Topaz SR10 and a Marantz SR4023. My CD player will be determined by the

receiver.

Any advice or opinions on receivers would be of great help.

Budget for receiver

My budget for the receivIer is about $500.00. That's why I have choosen the

CA Topaz SR10, and the Marantz SR4023. They fit into my price range.

Thanks for the reply.

STEREO RECEIVER

You can get the Harmon-Kardon AV 3490 receiver for well under $500, and it is much better in terms of both features and sound quality, as far as I am concerned.

It has a built-in phono preamp and subwoofer outputs, just to name two, and its amplifers are rated at 120 watts.

Check out the details at Amazon or Harmon-Kardon.

I think you mean the Harman Kardon HK 3490,

which is a stereo receiver rather than the Harman Kardon AVR series which are home theater receivers and under performing for two channel music.

Consider NAD and Marantz as well

Even their lowest cost receivers are built by a company that knows good sound and try to put some into their lowest price point merch.
