Hi Guys!

Would you be willing to recommend a decent (nothing fancy) pre amp/receiver with remote control to be used with active monitors?

Remote control mandatory.
If its depth is not too much that would be helpful as well for wife acceptance reasons...

And if the volume is shown on a display, I consider it cool. biggrin.gif

Thanks in advance for helping me out here.

^To the best of my knowledge Pioneer doesn't make any stereo receivers any more, but assuming you mean the introductory VSX521 surround receiver, it has pre-outs for the subwoofer, surround back, and front height only, but not the main stereo signal, which he needs obviously [unless you use the headphone jack trick I mentioned.] The current, introductory Sony, Onkyo, and Yamaha stereo receivers similarly lack stereo pre outs. Moving up to the $300 - $500 price range finds stereo preouts on Denon, Marantz, and NAD.

And if the volume is shown on a display, I consider it cool.
I take it you mean the unit's front panel, illuminated display, not a TV screen, right?
[Usually shown on a TV/video monitor's screen it is called "OSD" for "on screen display".]
