Hi there, my name is Cameron & I’m a tech expert here with JustAnswer, an independent, paid support website. Making sure we can find the best solution or steps forward for you here are my top priorities and I’m reviewing the information you’ve given me now!

Yes we can provide this kind of advice for you! Please let me the type of setup you have or are looking to have in your home. Let me know the details of what you have so far and what you're looking to buy, including brands and model numbers just so I have as much information as possible to make these decisions and suggestions for you!
Thanks for all this info Chris! Give me a few minutes to finish up help another customer and check out your information here and I'll get back to you shortly with some responses to these questions!
Ok I'm back! Typing out my answers now!
1) I don't think the price jump between the Mini 22s and Mini 20s are worth the negligable upgrade in quality, I would go with the Mini 20s!
2) Any subwoofer that is around the same age as the Mini 20s or newer should work! I would check Facebook Marketplace for this to see what you can find, I bet you can find a good deal for a sub there.
3) As far as an AV receiver, you really can't go wrong with Yamaha or Sony, they're top tier in this AV receiver market. Again, Facebook Marketplace is a great place to look for these, but if you want something new then I understand that & I would check both of those brands in person to decide which one is best for you. Most of the more modern receivers will have 4+ HDMI inputs and all should have an HDMI out.
4) I would not recommend pairing Bose equipment with non-Bose equipment. Technically it CAN work, but the exclusivity of Bose products causes issues and the connection always ends up being less than it should be between Bose & non-Bose systems. If you go with Bose essentially, everything in the system should be Bose. I guess that's why they charge so much and how they can get you to commit to their brand.
No worries, happy to answer any other questions you have!
I would likely recommend the Yamaha 1010 if you can get it for a good price! Otherwise the Denon is a good choice as well.
Based off of memory, I believe yes that's okay but you should check the speaker paperwork to double check this before purchasing.
No worries, happy to help! Good luck!
