I have been using a Yamaha receiver for several years with no issues. My speakers (center, L, R, rear L, rear R, sub) are all from Paradigm. Also, no complaints.
Easily outclasses my decade old Sony TV and old Dell laptop.

**I just realized what my user name is. I'm affiliated with Yamaha in an automotive sense. Still, I like the company and their products.**
Just tried newegg.com and crutchfield.com - seems like there is some nice pieces there - pity they are American, because I don't think they will work over here.
It's always better to get some personal recommendations - than to read the 'company propaganda' they post on line.
A friend also recommended play.com (for UK readers) - which I would not have thought of - as I assumed they were just DVD specialists.
