Just purchased a Panasonic AE7000U, 8 pairs glasses, new ceiling mount, and 50 ft HDMI cable.

I am replacing a Sharp 9000. I need to replace my existing Pioneer Elite 7.1 receiver since it is not 3D ready or HDMI.

I also have a Panasonic 3D Blu Ray and a Sharp DVD just for intros.

My speakers are M&K and I have a transducer in my raised rear platform.

Room is 14x21.

Any ideas for a new receiver?

Thanks
Jim

Price?

I'd say everybody is going to suggest Denon.

Personally I would split my signal video bypassing the receiver and straight to the AE7000u - the cheap option, but then you don't get all the fancy switching and all.

Depends on whether you listen at only average volume levels or prefer louder (near reference levels) audio for music and movies. If the latter, and the M&K are 4-ohm speakers, in the Denon series you'll want to go with either the older 4311CI on clearance, it's replacement the 4520CI, or either a 3312CI or 3313CI with an external amp (eg. Emotiva XPA-2).
