I am new to the world of surround. I have it setup upstairs and it a ROYAL pain. 3 remotes. However, it is barely used outside of football or my wife listening to radio.
So, now in the basement I am looking for a 5.1 setup that has HDMI switching and component inputs with minimal loss (on component) to PQ.
I plan on hooking up xbox (component), dvr - hdmi/component, ps2, ps3, wii, and maybe a nintendo 64 for the hell of it.
The 700ish series onkyo supposedly does switching. Is this the best bet for budget recievers? I bought a 5.1 onkyo set for my upstairs and the speaker sound quality was god awful. Replaced with some Energy speakers, and it was a great improvement, but there still is a very small amount of equalizer settings (if you can call it that) on my receiver.
Will it be the same?
