How does watching streaming video on receiver with air play compare picture quality wise vs using a very good hd laptop with hdmi connected to tv? Trying to decide what av reciever to buy:
Room size 16' X 19'
Have a 60" Sharp lc60LE640u TV (no 3D)- is ARC capable according to specs; also has several smart apps
Sharp tv has very low sound; tried a cheap soundbar (Vizio VSB200)-wasn't happy
Panny DMP-220 Bluray player
Directv HD DVR
Already have some older speakers: HSU Subwoofer STF-1 and two HSU ventriloquist VT254 satellite speakers and Polk CS101 center channel speaker.
I am hearing impaired in higher frequencies and am just looking primarily for a sound boost and clarity. A lot of suggestions for Denon 1612 or 1613.
Or is that over kill for my needs. Not sure i need 5.1 maybe 3.1.
