Well, after a lot of help on the speaker forum, I was recommended to change my setup to accommodate the challenges of my room, complicated most notably with my display being over a fireplace.
As of now, I am planning a 5.2 setup using B&W 685s as fronts, center and rears and 2 rythmik FV12 subs.
I am looking at 3 receivers right now:
Onkyo TX-NR809 $750
Marantz SR6005 $570
Denon 2311CI $540
Are the Onkyo's extra features worth the additional cost?
Will all match well with B&Ws?
How does the Denon compare with the Marantz?
Are there any other receivers around this price range that I should strongly consider?
Thanks for helping this first time HT buyer.
