What features (iPod connectivity, USB, satellite radio, multiple zones, etc.) are you looking for? How many HDMI or other inputs/outputs do you want/need? Or are you looking for just a basic stereo receiver that will accept those devices?
I am basicly looking for the best receiver for Phono, Tape, CD, DVD, TV, VCR and Cable Box for under $300.

An iPod capability and a USB capability would be nice too, I don't need HDMI very much at all. Can anyone help me?

the best receiver for Phono...for under $300.
If you're hoping for a new home theatre/multi-channel receiver with phono for that price, good luck. Try the used market.

As for stereo amp, the Yamaha RX397 might fit the bill & budget, though it's a tad short on inputs.

No problem. I use an old (c 1995) Pioneer Elite ProLogic AVR on my basement setup, and my old 70s Pioneer turntable sounds incredible through it!

So I went shopping this afternoon, and this is what I picked up!


This is a Teac AG-790A A/V Receiver, works great for my tape, cd, cable box, phono, dvd and all my other devices!

I guess if you're happy with two channel sound and analogue audio inputs for your various devices, then you've got something that does that. The specs I read stated 4 audio inputs and you list 7 items in your first post, so I assume you're going to go "through" your TV to act as a switch for some devices, or use an external switch, or not connect something.
