Thinking this might be the "bargain" starting receiver I was looking for... thoughts?

It looks like a decent entry level receiver. The four HDMI inputs and on-screen setup are nice. I think there are two things I would be concerned with: 1) 165 watts isn't much power when spread across 6 channels; this may be fine for your situation, but if you are trying to overcome ambient outdoor noises (traffic, neighbor A/C units, birds, etc.) you may decide you want more. 2) the speaker terminals look like the spring-tension type; in my experience those type of terminals aren't very durable - this is fine if connections are fairly permanent, but for frequent connect/disconnect cycles I would go for something you can use banana plugs with.

Looking through the specs on this receiver, it looks like it would be a good entry level receiver. I was reading some of the reviews and as bdwalker mentioned, the connections on the back are the "cheap" kind and won't be very durable. However, the 165W is max output per channel. You should get 75W with an 8ohm speaker. Here is the spec sheet
