I hope someone can provide me with a little direction. I'm finishing a theater room in my basement (22 x 17 x 8) and am trying to put together my first real system. I've spent hours and hours researching speakers, subs, projectors, amps, etc. I've pretty much decided on the Pioneer SP-PK52FS for my fronts with corresponding surrounds and center. I haven't decided on a sub yet, but it will probably be in the $300 range. For now, the receiver will need to run a blu-ray player, PS3 and satellite tv although the satellite tv will not have an HD feed to the receiver, at least for now. All of these components will go out to a projector (probably Epson 8350).
I've made pretty good headway with decisions on everything except for the receiver. I was leaning towards the Yamaha rxv673 but am thinking maybe I should look for a receiver with Audyssey rather than YPAO. The receiver needs to run at least 7.1. Although the 7.2 capability of the 673 is nice just in case, it's certainly not necessary. I'm a little gun shy of Onkyo given the hdmi issues, but am open to pretty much any brand. Any suggestions? Thanks!
