Not sure if this is the right place for this...
But, just a thought.
If different receivers give different sound signatures, is the search for a new receiver also in considering the video processing that you're getting?
If this is the case, how does a Pioneer Elite stack vs. a Denon? Marantz to Yamaha? etc.
And, ultimately, which would "syngerize" best with different TVs? In general (individual panel's picture qualities aside), which receiver would pair with an LED to warm it up but keep the vividness the LED fan is looking for, and so on?
Is this something people even take into consideration?
