Well folks... over the weekend, seems like my 2+ year old Harman Kardon decided to give up on me.... It sucks because that was my first kickass surround system. None of the HDMI ports are working anymore. Seems like the heating issue that I posted earlier was a sign.
Anyways.... so after having a "not-so-awesome" experience with HK, I have decided to steer away from HK now. I am trying to decide between Marantz, Yamaha and Onkyo now. Specifically:
Onkyo TX-NR709 (May be TX-NR609).
What do you guys think? It will be a 7.1 setup and I definitely need something with at least 2 optical in ports. Which one will you guys choose? And Why?
Thank you all in advance.
