I have a bit of a strange budget for a new receiver. I have the opportunity to order a new Yamaha RX-A1020 receiver for around $525. I'm not a big fan of the Yamaha YPAO calibration but for the price I can get past it. My question for all of you who are much more knowledgeable than I am, is there a better option for $525? The key features I'm looking for are HD radio and phono input. 4K and airplay are nice, but really not necessary.
My set-up right now is an LG 50PZ950, Def Tech SM65's for fronts, Def Tech SuperCube II subwoofer, Xfinity HD cable, and PS3 slim. Over the next year or so I will be slowly adding more components until I reach a full 7.1
Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
