I know there are a ton of threads between these receivers, so I apologize for the redundancy. I bought new speakers and decided to buy an amp. Now I need a new receiver because my Denon AVR 1911 does not have preouts.
All of the other threads on here are based on using the internal amplifiers. My question has more to do with which ones have the best video and musical quality.
Since I can not hear them in the same configuration I have, I want to know if anyone knows how to determiine which ones have the best sound quality, which is my ultimate goal.
[BThe Pioneer VSX 1120 / Elite 32: I like the feature set a lot but I know the internal amps are weak. How is the sound and video quality by itself.
Yamaha 667 / A700 : I like the sound and clarity of the Yamaha's but do not know a lot about them. This has the least features, and costs the least out of the bunch.
Onkyo 706 : This has a good feature set and I can not hear the sound because they are not sold anywhere around me. I have heard they are bright, but would this be the amp or the processor. MY Polks ae a little bright so I do not want a bright receiver.
My set up: FR&L Polk RTi A9 / Center Polk CSI A6 / Rear R&L Polk Rti A7 / Side TSI 500 / SUB PSW 550 / Amp Sunfire Cinema Grand 7
The primary use is for HT, but I do like to listen to music and loudly and clearly when I do.
So, for Base Sound and HT processing quality, What do you suggest
