Default Well, this is embarrassing. A/V receiver

I have a pioneer 5.1 channel receiver that's about to give. Looking for a 5.2 channel processor. I was completely new to audio when i bought it. I'm just curios of whats a good budget receiver I was looking into crown amps. And the part I need finding is a 5.2 A/V processor for under $500.

Best Buy has a pile of 5.2 receivers on sale right now - most under $300. I'd start there..

Crutchfield has a pretty good range of 5.2 receivers for under $500..

Sreten: 5.2 aka 5 channel Dolby Atmos, two subwoofers...
See also Dolby 7.2

Emotiva makes an Atmos pro, but it's about $2500.

I was curious, but could not find a single processor online anywhere near your price point.

This is going in my bedroom. How I got 2 subs is a long funny confusing story.

Also im not looking into amp and processor combos. My fronts need 200w RMS. No best buy receiver will produce that. That's why i'm looking at crown amps.

For a bedroom system not really required, and 50W would only be 6dB less loud than a 200W amp.

More relevant is the efficiency of your speakers..

91 dB sensitivity? A 5 watt amp will be good enough.
