Hey Guys, i was thinking of gettign teh Anthem MRX300 as a Pre then using Emo amps. After thinking about it, i would be spending about $1200 for the MRX, but it has minimal connections. Only 4 HDMI, no 7.2 (which i was thinking of doing) etc. The only reason why i was thinking of going the Anthem route was becasue of ARC and the fact that its Anthem.
What would be a good receiver for under $1000 that i can use? I would like it to have HDMI connections, 7.2 in case i decide to do it and also some sort of room calibration system like Arc or Audyssey?
In case it matters, i would be running Paradigm Studio series speakers in a 7.1 setup for now.
