I could use a little help. I'm going blind reading all the posts and trying to figure out the differences between all these receivers. smile.gif

I have it narrowed down to these four:

1.) Denon 1612, $199 for refurb at A4L
2.) Denon 1613, $350 at Amazon
3.) Yamaha 373, $250 at Amazon
4.) Yamaha 473, $350 at Amazon

I'll be using it primarily for TV and movies. I have Klipsch KG2.5 for front mains and KV1 for the center. I currently have KG .5 rear speakers but am considering getting something smaller that I can wall-mount easier.

Any suggestions on the receiver or rear replacements would be greatly appreciated.

The Denon AVRs feature Audyssey MultEQ which can EQ the sub, whereas the Yamahas cannot. Also the 1613 is a networking AVR whereas the 1612 is not, so just depends on what features you want.
