Slim Receiver with HD Radio

My old receiver is dead and I'm looking for its replacement. I'd like for it to include an HD tuner. Due to space constraints & existing furniture I want the receiver under 6" height. As far as I can tell this means Onkyo TX-8050 + the UP-HT1 adapter. It seems like even buying both of these I can stay under $500. Anyone have any experience with either part? Recommend Onkyo generally? Know of any alternative receivers which are under 6"?

Get whatever receiver or amp you like and add this: http://denonpro.com/products/view/dn-f300#.VknlsFWrTmE That's what we use in our equipment racks for monitoring.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

In my opinion, you cannot go wrong with Onkyo. They have been in my house for quite a few years, and I have only 1 complaint. And that is this very topic. My last receiver was a TX-NR636 and I had a UP-HT1, which I thoroughly loved. I fried my 636 with a ground loop in 2014, and upgraded to 4K TV last year, so I had to get a 4K compatible receiver, which, unfortunately, does not have a universal port.

I've been looking for a standalone tuner for my home system. Not easy to find.

CIAO!

Did you quote the right thing?

It looks like a digital audio player, not an HDRadio receiver..

Unless I'm missing something here.

That's definitely the wrong link. Swear it worked, previously.
