I am looking for some receiver recommendations. Right now I am working on updgrading my setup going from a Onkyo TX-SR504 to the latest and greatest that is HDMI capable. I am running Pioneer (FS51, CS21, BS21) speakers and will be getting a BIC sub (F12 or PL-200). I am looking for a capable receiver under $300. 5.1 or 7.1 does not matter (I have had a 7.1 capable system for over 5 years and only run 5.1) and it does not need to have video processing capabilities as all of my video sources are HD.

Let me know if I forgot any details...

I saw a similar thread recently and I believe the consensus was the Denon 1911, but it's a little over your budget ($343 shipped, if I remember correctly). Another option is the Pioneer VSX-920-K for around $270 shipped.

How are you liking the Pioneer speakers?

Thanks for the recommendations.

The pioneers are great so far a lot more separation and mid-range compared to my previous setup.

Any other receiver recommendations?

Will I notice a significant difference in sound by upgrading from the Onkyo TX-SR504 to something like the Denon 1911?

The advantage of the Denon over the old Onkyo is the Audyssey room calibration software. Power might be a little more too but I think the Audyssey MultiEQ makes a bigger difference. And of course the fact you'll be able to play lossless audio from your blu ray player via HDMI.
