I guess I won't need any of these. I decided to just stick with my Denon AVR-3803. I can't find a 'true' HT receiver at any price up to $1000 that actually functions as an "AUDIO" and video receiver. They are now basically just HDMI switchers with little to no functionality for CD Recorders, Turntables, VCRs or even DVD-Recorders, let alone my dual cassette deck. The funny thing is that they are only truely compatible with are one type of equipment that was designed to use HDMI as it's primary audio/video connection, a bluray player. I can also use my HD Cable box DVR, but being compatible with only 2 pieces of equipment does not make it a true HT A/V receiver. That even low as when my DVR fills up, I need to use my DVD Recorder (or a VCR) to take over so the DVR needs analog audio/video compatibility functionality as well.
So if and when the industry starts making Home Theater A/V receivers again, I may look again. I was all set to purchase an Onkyo TX-NR609 but have found way to many reliability complaints or functionality problem complaints with this receiver as well as the TX-NR709. Unfortunate as these are the only upper end receivers that offer these inputs. Pioneer's lower end VSX-1021 also offers good inputs but others fall short for connection compatibility with none HDMI equipment.
