Sorry f this is the wrong place to post.
I considering between the following, and you suggestions are appreciated.
RX-V673: Newegg: 419.99
AVR-2312CI: Accessories4Less: 449.99 (refurbished, 1 yr warranty)
TX-NR616: Newegg: $350
I have Boston Acoustic CS226 towers and center. I'm thinking of getting Orbs or NHTs for sides and rears. I have an 18 x 24 x 8.5 rectangular room, with a 54 plasma TV at one of the shorter ends, so I think I can take advantage of 7.2 sound.
I have only one input, an AppleTV 2 running XBMC off of my server. All my content is downloaded. I will shortly be "upgrading" to an Apple TV 2 with a CrystalHD card. The bottom line is that I will use this set up for watching movies and TV, rarely for music. I'm also not that discerning, but I was able to tell the difference in a blind test between a Pioneer and a Yamaha in a listening room some years ago.
I'm also an avid iPad user, so the Apps help. I don't mind spend the extra $5 for the DeRemote program if that is the best.
So, what are your thoughts?
