This home theater receiver from JVC gives you your money's worth, and then some. Built-in processing for Dolby Digital and DTS lets you take advantage of the discrete digital multichannel soundtracks from thousands of DVDs, select DBS programs and an ever-growing number of digital TV broadcasts. Built-in Dolby Pro Logic decoding gives you surround sound from your non-digital home theater sources (such as a HiFi VCR or stereo TV).

Rated at 100 watts x 5 channels in surround mode and 100 x 2 in stereo, the RX-6000V delivers rich, detailed sound both for movies and music. And you get plenty of inputs for your A/V components: 1 optical and 1 coaxial input for digital sources; plus 3 audio and 3 A/V inputs (including 1 S-video jack) for analog sources. A dedicated preamp output lets you add a powered subwoofer for heavy home theater impact.
