Hello fellow users, experts. I am in need for a new receiver for a home theater room. Price range is between $400-600. I currently have the following components:

Projector: Epson PowerLite 8350.
Speakers: Polk, Klipsch.
Bluray: Sony PS3

I need feedback on the following receivers and if any one of these need to be avoided. Pluses and minuses if anyone is using any of these personally.

Onkyo TX-NR609,
Pioneer VSX-1021-K,
Denon AVR-1912,
Yamaha RX-V867

Thanks!

Just bought the Onkyo TR-NR609 in combination with Boston Acoustics Soundware speakers. Price: 769 Euro in total. And the sound is amazing !
But I do have an issue right now: after firmware upgrade, I do not have USB functionality anymore, also internet radio doesn't work anymore. Tried factory reset (VCR/DVD + standby on receiver, got "claer" message"), but firmware version is still the latest one and my issues remain.
Are there other ways to get my receiver in it's original state?

Of that list the Yamaha 867 would probably be my first pick. If you add the Denon 2112 to the list then that would be a tough one. The 2112 has MultEQ XT so its a step above the 1912.

Yep, I went with the 867. So far I am very happy with my decision! Good value for money receiver.

I'm pretty much looking at the 1912 and 867 also. The 1912 is about 40 dollars more than the yamaha when newegg runs the sales on the 867. Really having a hard time deciding as the yamaha is an older model, but totally out classes the 1912 denon. The 867 looks to have a lot more goodies and some I don't even need except maybe for future expansion, but I heard denon really shines in quality and MultiEQ > YPAO or w/e it is. GAH can't decide. Pretty much not even looking at hte pio and the onkyo is just "kinda" on my radar. I've read almost every single thread about these receivers and become more confused as I go.

Looking to pair it with either monitor 50's with CS1 center + 30 rears or possibly go all out (push the budget to the extreme side) and get 70's and a cs2 with 30 rears. Might skip the sub for a bit on the 70's until I could save up some more cash. Probably would get the F12 sub.
