5.1 receiver replacement

My receiver went out and I need to replace it.
Of course all of the speakers are already placed,I just need the receiver.
Any recommendations? Make and model number?
Thanks in advance!

I replaced my no-name system a number of years ago. Mine is mounted in a small cabinet opening below the TV. So I was pretty limited on box size. Took cabinet measurements and went to Best Buy. They had several home theater systems (5.1 sound/DVD-CD PLAYER/FM radio) of varying sizes and all came with new speakers. Only one (a Panasonic) fit my opening, so that is what I bought. Decided to also use the new speakers although that meant slightly enlarging the speaker openings in my cabinet. Did reuse the old wiring. Sound is much better than the old system.

Considering the small size of the trailer and no need for booming, wall vibrating sound, I don't think you need any particularly high end system. I turned down the gain to my subwoofer to reduce impact on neighbors.

Thanks Bill I tried Best Buy but they didn’t have what I was looking for.
