Default need help picking out reciever.

I have a 55 inch Panasonic plasma. Need help picking out a reciever. I have two big really nice jbl house speakers. I believe they are the reference series. Each speaker has a 12 inch subwoofer. Mid range and tweeter. They can handle a ton of power. Any suggestions? Wanna spend under 400 dollars. Surround sound is not a big deal for me.

This is an excellent choice for a top notch AVR in your price range

I've deleted each of those that in-post link for the sub is a new method of linking to Amazon so poster gets credit for purchase.

Since i only have two speakers it it better for me to just get a 2 channel amp? Because isnt some of the power wasted because its getting spread out thru multille channels?

By getting a 5.1 or 7.1 AVR you are future proofing your setup the only power used is that which is connected, the other connections do not use energy till they are connected to speakers the number of speakers do not govern the amount of power consumed.

Ok. I got u. The thing is i dont plan on adding more sound. I already drive a gmc yukon with 6 grand of high end audio equipment. Could you show me a good.2.channel reciever that will adequately power these 2 speakers? Ill look on the back of them when i get home. But they cqn handle alot of power.

Unless you are going (ultra) high end or paying a hefty premium you get the most bang for your buck out of an AVr like that it suits your needs and has all the power your speakers will need. Dedicated 2 channel amps will leave you with the need for a tuner or source deck and end up costing a lot more.

As jkkyler just posted most 2 channel amplifiers are all high scale units $$$$$ aimed at purist Audiophiles. If you want power look at the Denon 3312CI AVR power channels rated @ 125W (8 ohms, 20Hz to 20kHz, 0.05% THD) continuous output (875W total) A lot of power does not correlate to clean sound.
