I've had my Denon AVR-887 in my theater for a little over 2 years and the sound just died tonight. Since buying it I have not kept up with what's going on so that I wouldn't catch an upgrade bug since what I had was fine.
If someone could please help point me in the right direction it would greatly reduce the time that it will take to research what to buy so that I can get it back up and running before Christmas. That means that I have to make a decision this weekend in order to have a chance of getting a replacement in time.
I have a PS3 and HD-DVD. I use HDMI into the receiver and then out to my Epson 720 projector. I've got a 7.1 set-up. My next projector will be a 1080p but not anytime soon. I must be able to rename the inputs and would like a little more power. I could only go up so much and my A2-300 sub would cut out (don't know why it does that so I just don't turn it up).
I don't need the latest and would prefer to save the money. This receiver only cost me about $550 when I got it.
Any suggestions on models would help to greatly reduce the time it's going to take to find a replacement. Thank you.
