Hello,

I just got wine spilled into my $300 Yamaha AV Receiver and I am now in the market for a new one.

I'm looking at the following on Amazon as a start and would really appreciate any feedback or suggestions that anyone may have:

Yamaha RX-V473 5.1-Channel Network AV Receiver
http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-RX-V473-5-1-Channel-Network-Receiver/dp/B007JF85VU/

Denon AVR-1613 5.1 Channel 3D Pass Through and Networking Home Theater Receiver with AirPlay
http://www.amazon.com/Denon-AVR-1613-Channel-Networking-Receiver/dp/B007R8U5QW/

Harman Kardon AVR 1565 5.1-channel, 70-Watt Audio/Video Receiver with HDMI v.1.4a ,3-D
http://www.amazon.com/Harman-Kardon-AVR-1565-5-1-channel/dp/B00548SKH8/

Marantz NR1403 Slim Line AV Receiver
http://www.amazon.com/Marantz-NR1403-Slim-Line-Receiver/dp/B0081N916M/

5.1 should work for me as that's my speaker config, and I don't need a lot of power. We tend to run a lot of TV, movies, and compressed audio through it in the form of downloaded video and audio.

I occasionally put on a CD for a more rewarding audio experience, but I basically just want to get the all-round best value for the money with a good feature set.

I do need at least 3 or 4 HDMI input and do have a turntable hooked up to it which gets some use.

Best,
John
