Hello everyone! I am getting pretty close to buying a receiver and I could really use some thoughts!

Set up:
- Klipsch Ref 7 speakers in a 5.1 configuration
- Marantz SR-8400
- Crown 2 channel amp
- PS3
- 80/20 HT/Music

Desires: (in order of importance)
- The best A/V quality in something <$1000
- Excellent auto EQ
- Reliability/stability
- Bells and whistles if possible but not necessary

Given my situation, what would you guys and gals recommend?

Thank you very much for your time! Chad

Just over all performance/ feature of the Denon plus I have owned another lower end Denon rcr that I also like. Onkyo from reading here seems to have bad customer service and reliability issue. I have heard good thing about Anthem rcr with ARC. Dont know about Rotel.

I went from R-972 to Denon 4810, then 4311, then back to R-972.

Less bells and whistles, better sound; see the current 972 threads for more info.
