I'm in the market to upgrade my current AVR (a 3-year old Pioneer non-HDMI VSX-516) to one that will provide me the following:
excellent HT audio & music reproduction
video upscaling a plus
Multiple HDMI connections
plenty of power
Connected to: Motorola /comcast HD box, Toshiba HDDVD player, XBox 360, ps3, Samsung 63" plasma, fronts: jbl s38 & center; surrounds: jbl s26 & CS newton s205, sub: SVS pc12-nsd
In my set-up, our usage breaks down along these lines: HT 40%, HDTV 25%, Gaming 20%, Music 15%. No radio play.
Some of the models I've been investigating and considering:
HK AVR 355
Each seem to have certain strengths (and thusly, each have their loyal followings). Any input or comments for those who've been through this decision-making process would be appreciated. I'd like to know why you chose the make/model you did over the others and are you pleased with that decision? Thanks!
