Hi all,
I am looking for a 7.2 (or 7.1) HT processor that doesn't include amplification, so I can use higher wattage external amps. Do any of you have a recommendation or two for me to check out?
And thanks to all of you for making AVS such an incredible resource for HT newbies like myself. It is truly appreciated!

Generally lower end models don't include a full set of 7.1 main zone pre-outs. What is your max budget?

Lowest level models ...

Denon 3313CI ($1199)
Marantz SR5007 ($849)
Onkyo 717 ($999)

You may also want to consider last year's models which are on clearance.
