I'm nowhere near an audiophile, but I do love and want good sound in my 22X12 living NYC living room. I'm looking for a receiver to replace old and now dead Denon DRA stereo receiver with easy connectivity to 3 y/o Samsung 40" LCD tv, IPod readiness and a bit of future-proofing.
I've been looking at Onkyo SR-TX309, Yamaha RX-V471, and Denon AVR 1612. I think the Onkyo 509 is more in the league with my Yamaha and Denon choices, but what's nice about the 309 is Ipod readiness at a ~$100 lower price point. thanks for any tips and input.
