Hello,

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?

EVERY modern receiver that has multiple hdmi inputs does "HDMI Switching."

Most of them will also IMPROVE your component PQ, not make it worse.

What's your receiver budget?

Pioneer 1020
Pioneer 920
Denon 2310
Denon 1911
Denon 591
Yamaha 765
Yamaha 667

...all good options in your price range.

Do you need/want 3D support? Internet radio? iDevice integration? Pre-outs for an external amplifier? etc etc...
