After just making a purchase of two SVS PB12-NSD's, I am going to pick up a new AV receiver. The Denon AVR-4311CI seems to be a highly respected receiver @ AVS and other forums. I currently own a older Yamaha, that for the most part I have been happy with and at first was just going to replace it with another newer Yamaha, but do not know for sure.
My question is this. The Denon model is several years old now and many of the manufactures are currently introducing newer models. What am I giving up, if anything, by going with a slightly older model vs the newest equipment? Why would I choose the Denon?
At around $1500 it is a lot closer to my budget than where it was originally priced. I need to try and stay around $1500 - $1600.
Thanks for your thoughts,
