I have a small 10x12 bedroom. I want a solid receiver with at least 3 hdmi inputs.

I've done my share of research and I know a lot of it is subjective. I just want some more opinons, maybe some links to some good deals?

I have a $250 budget. I was thinking the Onkyo 508. It's on sale at a store by me for $230.

If this subject has been beaten to death, I apologize

Thanks for the help

Doug

Good choice. In your price range you might want to check out the Pioneer VSX-520 or VSX-521 as well.

Would you go with the 820 over the 521?

Well, if it were me I'd get the 820 but it depends on what's important to you. The 521 gives you audio return channel if you need that and a bit beefier power supply (415w vs 245w). The 820 gives you built in ipod control, sirius radio compatibility, and 5-way binding posts for all but the zone 2 speakers.

There's also styling but that's on you.

Good luck!
