I need a surround sound speaker system that works with this receivers speaker connections. What speakers do you sell that will work with this 1510 receiver? I bought a Vizio soundbar but it has plug in connections and will not work with this receiver.
your 75 watt / 5.1 channel AVR is much cheaper than your 85 watt stereo receiver. It appears I give up is the phono input but gain much more in other source capabilities. What else do I give up by going to stereo. Note - I have 2 very good speakers
