It needs to
1. handle 4 ohm load
2. have pre-outs for later amplification
3. be able to pass hdmi signal untouched to the display
4. make a mean western style omelet.
So far my eyes are on a used Onkyo 805. I did have a seller nailed down but he never received my money order(thanks US mail!), and said he had to "move on". Audiogon had 3 of these onkyos recently but now that I'm back looking what do you know there isn't any except for a guy with no feedback and only accepts cash/check/money order, what's wrong with paypal?
