My old Sony surround sound receiver died, and need to replace with a new one. I am not an audiophile and am on a budget, so I am just looking for a low-end receiver that will give me surround sound again.
Really only must-have is HDMI pass through (including 3D) with at least 4 HDMI Inputs
I have it narrowed it down to the Denon AVR-1312 ($179) and the Onkyo TX-NR509 ($229).
Both have 4 HDMI inputs and anything else I'll probably need. The Onkyo is intriguing for another $50 as it is network connected and has the iPhone control app, as well as a few other features. From what I have read here though, there seems to be some HDMI pass through issues. Is this valid? Reliability is a big factor in my purchase.
Any advice would be appreciated, i am torn between the two at the moment.
