alright so I have decided that I am going to go with one of the below receivers:

Denon 1913 - solid receiver
Yamaha RX-V673 - has 4000p processing capability
Sony STRDN1030 - has built in wifi and bluetooth.

They are all pretty good receivers does anyone have any recomendations on which one I should go with? Also if anyone has any other recomendations for a receiver under 700 dollars that would be a better buy please let me know.

Thanks,

Those are all $400ish AVRs. Out of those I would take the Sony for the wifi and BT because it would be useful to me. CNET and Sound and Vision gave high marks to the Sony. The Sony probably has the most power.

The Denon has Audessy which seems to be popular here, although CNET noticed no real difference compared to Sony's room correction implementation.

The Yamaha has the most "features" as far as DSP modes and has the better GUI but likely the weakest amp, not that it probably makes much difference.

If you step up to $700 it opens up a whole new level of AVR, like the Pioneer SC1222, Denon 3312, and such.

You should check out the new Marantz SR5007. Getting very good reviews on performance and simplicity to set up and use. Also a lot of the high end installers in our area are switching to them. I compared it to the Yamaha Aventage RX-A720 and the Denon AVR-2313CI and am going to go with the Marantz when it goes on sale via Amazon or best buy. Crutchfield has it with a special combination price with the 5007 3D Bluray player if you want to upgrade your bluray at the same time. I think $100 or $200 off. The Marantz looks to have more complete upconversion and more power to name a few benefits. Hope this helps.

Based on specs and reviews of other pioneer AVRs using the D3 amps, I would go with the Pioneer SC1222K.
