My receiver is on the fritz and I'm trying to decide the best way to replace it before it dies. Also, I just got a house, so I can finally have a sub and not upset anyone:-). So right now I have an Onkyo SR508 powering two floorstading Athena's, an Athena center and two Athena surrounds. I have $700 to spend, I could go $800 depending on the recommendations. I have seen quite a bit of mentioning of the Denon 2113CI and I can get that on accessories4less for $400.00 and have some room to buy a ~$300 sub. Or I could forgo the Sub for a while and get an Onkyo 818 for $800 or an Onkyo 809 for $630. I'm also open to other suggestions, I've been researching like crazy and it's hard to narrow them down.
What would you all do?
Thanks in advance!!
