I say Yamaha or Denon for a decent price, I have a Yamaha DSP-A1 and a Yamaha R-V1105 and love them.

Onkyo fan for 10 years, but any equivalent will do.

I've always been very pleased with Denon.

I just upgraded to my 3rd unit, mainly to get the video upconversion so every type of video gets converted to component

(newest 3800's convert to HDMI)

I have a 7.1 yamaha that does just about everything you want and is about $400 to $500 range. I love it. I've had Pioneer as well. The 7.1s on them run about $500ish.

I couldn't see spending over $1k unless you had your own personal theater that you had to fill the room with sound. The ones I've mentioned are quite capable of filling the room with great sound for a lot less money.

PS:

Speakers are just as/or more important than the receiver. Don't go cheap on them.

I always found Denon to sound good, but a pain to operate. lousy remotes.
I love H/k stuff, I think the best for the money.

Yamaha 5760 + a nice set of speakers here, and quite pleased. Was $375 when I got the receiver and can more than deafen you in my listening space.

EVERYONE with a SO should buy a HARMONY universal remote


You fill in your gear on a website, hook up the download cable, bada-bing, bada-boom, it's programmed.


Best damned thing I've bought. Wanna watch tv? Press the "watch tv" button. DVD? Same? Etc...

You can easily (5 minutes) program new ones if it doesn't have what you want.

I just recently bought a Denon 1906, to work with my Definitive speakers and new plasma. So far I'm loving it. The 2nd room source works great, I pump audio out to my pool table room and my patio, while playing another source in my living room.
