I’ve been out of the Home Theater game for a long time. My last TV is 10 years old this month (Mits 65613 behemoth). I just bought a replacement yesterday. I bought the 92840 as I’ve been eyeing it for a while.
With that, I need a new receiver. My current one (Yamaha with no HDMI) is 7+ years old doesn’t have HDMI. I’ve narrowed it down to what I want to spend to these 4 models. However, if there is one for just a bit more, I’m open for suggestions. The following models are what I’ve being looking at.
I haven’t fully compared features to each other but I’m looking for:
-At least 6 HDMI inputs (I’d prefer say 8 for expandability but it’s not a necessity)
-Audyssey/YPAO/MCACC type calibration (I’m not even sure if these are even close being the same.) Do they include Mics?
-Video up conversion (from old RCA/Component connections)
-Airplay would be nice but not a necessity.
-Good menu system (I never liked my current Yamaha one but I’m sure it’s changed.)
-A decent “iOS” would also be nice for control on my ipad.
Off the top of my head this is all I can think of. I’m wanting to order something in the next couple of days. Appreciate any suggestions and feedback!
