Thanks for your responses and I appreciate the honesty. Drridhesh, I will probably be searching for receivers comparable to the marantz when I decide to purchase. ThAnks for the recommendation. And about the basement situation, the answer will prob be yes. I will be living in the triad region and many of the homes in that area have basements/man caves.
Rtrose and bigmouth- I agree with you on the projector situation. They will have stuff out in 6 months that makes the current models "old". However, i believe many improvements will be in the 3D realm and not so much 1080p. If They do decide to increase resolution by the time I am able to purchase my projector, I will still prob end up with a 1080p projector. And by then, it will be much cheaper. That's why I wanted to go ahead and make my wish list now. I will not make any purchases just yet, I just want to have my search narrowed down for when it is time to "bargain" hunt for a good deal on a used item. Im sure this will be more applicable to the AV receivers and not so much with the projectors since I will most likely buy my projector new and not used.
So, I have one recommendation on the marantz sr6005. Any other suggestions on a nice receiver that pairs well with my klipsch speakers? Trying to keep the receiver at the 1000 and under range.
Like I stated in my original post, I will be purchasing my receiver used. So whatever is "new" now will probably be what I purchase used a year from now at a bargain deal!
Thanks again everyone!
