I currently have an Onkyo S4100 HTIB. I am wanting to upgrade and get a better receiver that has HDMI in/out so I can simplify things and get a better overall setup.

I am thinking about getting a Yamaha RX-V373 receiver and a set of MLT-2 speakers. Comes out to around $570 on Amazon. Or I was also looking at the Onkyo 414 receiver and the Energy Take Classic speakers. This combo would be around $630.

Opinions? Is the Onkyo/Energy setup worth the higher price? And what else would I need to purchase to complete the setup? I'm guessing some banana plugs seeing as how these setups don't use the spring clips like my current 4100 does.

I have the RX-V371 and have been very happy with it. There's not much difference between the 371 and the 373. The MLT-2s or the Energy's would be a nice complement to it if you want/need to stay with the bookshelf-sized speakers. I'm thinking on upgrading to the MLT-2s for my system because of the bigger drivers. The Yamaha has binding post connectors so wired speakers will work unless you want to add banana plugs.
