I'm trying to decide between the Onkyo TX-NR809, Yamaha RX-A2000, or Denon AVR-3312CI - any key recommendations? So far from what I've read the key pros and cons that potentially matter to me, among potentially others, are:

1) Onkyo TX-NR809 (can probably get for $750 all-in)
Pros: Cheapest, Dolby Volume, 4K video upscaling, very good reviews online (e.g. Amazon)
Cons: Largest (height and weight) - only have 10" high space, HD radio only via add-on, through mode (and direct mode on occasion) may darken picture; reliability issues, though perhaps mainly with last year's model;

2) Yamaha RX-A2000 ($1000 all-in)
Pros: Satellite Radio-ready, may be more reliable?
Cons: Not as many Internet options, more proprietary sound correction?, need dock for Ipod

3) Denon AVR-3312CI ($1200 all-in)
Pros: Comes very recommended from stores, can get locally, smallest (height and weight), AirPlay
Cons: Most expensive; No Satellite radio expandability; Audyssey Dynamic Volume may cause drop-outs with U-Verse (which I have); reliability issues, though mainly with last year's model; Not rated for 4ohm speakers (I'm considering either Martin Logan Motion 8/4s (4 ohms) or Def Tech PC 2000/1000s)

I'm planning on using them mostly for TV/Movies and not as much for music and I value the video processing as well as the audio.

Any recommendations or key things to consider?
Many thanks in advance!

What decision did you make, and were you happy with it? I am on ebay looking at similar receivers with the same questions. HDRadio is important to me, satellite radio is not. I was just about firm in my decision to go with Yamaha, but I've lately been thinking again about Denon. I'd love Dolby Volume, but I actually won't touch Onkyo as I have one I hate in another room. I'm not sure if Denon has a solution for that. I can see that the Yamaha has something that would work for movies, but not commercials, etc.

Thanks,
Bob
