I am looking to upgrade my Denon 1709. The upcoming Wii U doesn't support optical audio out, so I am forced to purchase a new receiver.
I really just want something with identical quality and features to my 1709, but with hdmi surround pass through capability. I also love my audysee multEQ. My room is massive and I have really enjoyed how well the Denon 1709 has filled my room and I give a lot of the credit to the multEQ.
I am looking for something used and cheap. Thinking $180? $200? Shoot I would love $150 or $100. This doesn't seem to far fetched, seeing as I see my beloved 1709 for $80 and less all day. I am thinking the 1909 my be a nice option, but is it the best option? Is there really anything I might be missing above the 1909?
