I am looking to change my receiver. My old Denon 3805 is a little outdated without HDMI. I love the receiver, but I need that feature.
I moved from a house to a townhouse, so I am not running full surround anymore, so I dont think I need anything as good as the 3805. Probably going to look into a high quality soundbar eventually. (Currently running two tower speakers and a kef reference center channel)
Main features I am looking for is HDMI, Ipod feature, reliable, sounds decent,. Bonuses would be 3d, music streaming for Pandora etc.
I am really lost at entry level products. I dont want junk and will pay a couple dollars more for a better product and one that is more 'future' proof. But the lower cost the better, I dont even mind last year or two's models.
So. I have been looking at the Yamaha's and the Onyko. have seen some issues with the Onyko on this forum that leaves me concerned.
Some models that I have been researching
Yamaha Rx 373
and looking at sony/pioneer/etc
Any help would be appreciated.
The Yam 373 looks good, but seems to be the lowest end model with the features. Would I be better off buying for the same price the older Yam rxv571 or paying more and getting the rxv671? Or go the other way and save money and get the 371?
I am probably missing key models and brands I should be looking into.
