Ok right now I have a 770W 7.1 Pioneer Receiver with kickass JBL speakers. The channels keep cutting out here and there during games. I brought it in to get repaired, apparently it was the solders in the back where the wires connect in. This issue is occurring again. I figured I should probably get a new receiver and I don't know what to get. I put a lot of money out for the JBL speakers so I def want to keep it at 7.1. I don't know that much about home audio... what should I look for? Is wattage a big thing? What brands are good? Does Pioneer have this problem over all their receivers? I want something with high quality around the $300-$700 range.
