I have a Harman Kardon AVR 247 right now, which is good but a little mild with my JBL speakers for my tastes, and I'm getting a Sony 3D TV next month so I figured I'll upgrade the receiver, too, I just don't wanna blow a lot of cash on it. Basically, all I want out of my next receiver is for blurays and games and TV to sound amazing in 5.1 and an onscreen menu. I don't need any upscaling as the TV will do that just fine I'm sure.
It really seems like the 591 is the one for me to get. All who own it, are you happy with it? Levels of happiness? My speakers aren't high end by any means and the room it'll be in is a basement so acoustically I don't have to worry about much, I just want clear, bold, bright sound and I'm pretty sure the 591 will do that.
If I wasn't into home theater, I'd have a whole lotta money.
