Pawn Shop Stereo

Hey guys,

Long story short, I live in a house with 3 other dudes, we have a pretty decent entertainment setup centered around a 55" flat screen.

We have a couple very nice, probably 3-4', Sony stack speakers but we need a receiver to pair them to for when we want louder volume for parties/bonfires etc.

What do you guys think I could get a decent receiver for at a local pawn shop? I've never really payed attention, I've only bought guitars at pawn shops. Craigslist is hit or miss and that stuff isn't registered to see if it's stolen or not like the shops around here.

I'm not looking for any high fidelity stuff, do you guys think a cheapo receiver would work for us? College budgets have a tendency to limit our options.

Okay, weíre a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius

Cheapo is fine, just make sure it has enough channel wattage to push your speakers plus a little more for overhead.

Thanks, I figured to do a little research on the specs of the certain model speakers we have before we grabbed one.

There are damn few "Bad" systems anymore. Even an el cheapo with decent speakers will sound good in the background of a decent keg party.
Most pawns won't take really trashed units anyway, to find one of those you would have to look in a thrift store.
