I can get a 2112 at $XXX, a 2312 at $XXX + $100 or an Onkyo 709 at $XXX.92 (the XXXs are so I don't violate the price talk rules). I am replacing a Denon 3803 and I have owned a Denon CD player and DVD player. I have never owned anything by Onkyo. The features seem very close. I know the Onkyo has a boatload more inputs but something about that isn't selling me. We do not currently have any Apple products (but my wife is threatening to trade her BlackBerry for an iPhone). My system consists of the following:
Panasonic TC-65PS14, 65" Plasma
Dish DVR-522 SD DVR (planning to upgrade to Dish HD soon, currently connected to the AVR via S-video cable and optical audio cable & to the GoVideo via composite (Left-Right-Video) cable)
GoVideo VR 3390 DVD Recorder
Toshiba DVR-610 DVD Recorder (thought the GoVideo was dying) (Has HDMI)
OPPO BDP-83 BluRay Player (currently connected directly to the Panasonic with the audio run back to the AVR via optical cable)
Sony C601ES CD Changer (connected via optical cable)
Polk Audio RM 8 Front & Center, RM 7 Surrounds (x4)
Pioneer powered Subwoofer
Thanks in advance for any ideas you all can give me, especially whether the 2112 v. 2312 is worth the $100 difference.
PS - - I put this same post in the Denon xx12 thread.
