Greetings all, am looking for advice on "upgrading" from a H/K 2600 to a "moderately priced" AVR that will do networking etc. Honestly all I really need or want the networking for is internet radio and Pandora for entertainment, kids enjoyment etc. I am on my second H/K and am experiencing the dreaded "Protect mode" issues as well as HDMI input issues (one of them is dead). So I am ready to move on from Harman Kardon. After much thought I am leaning towards the Denon 2112CI. I was considering some of the similarly priced Onkyo's but am somewhat leery of the HDMI issues they are known for. My brother has a 515 that is in the shop, again.
Any thoughts on the Denon 2112CI as an entry level networking AVR? Most of the use will be normal D* viewing, some Blu-Ray use, and hopefully the internet radio stuff. I currently stream Pandora and Netflix thru either the Roku or a Sony Blu-ray player. Also, should I be leery of a refurb unit from Accessories for Less? I am ok with a 1 year warranty at that price. Any advice is much appreciated.
