I have a couple hours to decide if I'm going to upgrade my yamaha RX-V1600 to an Onkyo TX-NR818. Best Buy is selling it at 899$ (here in Canada) for boxing day. I know that it is a broad question, but is it worth the upgrade sound wise?

It will power a set of 5.1 Klipsch speakers, HSU VTF-15H sub and will be connected to my new JVC DLA-RS46 (128").

It's not about output, it's about having headroom and a smooth response across multiple seats. And output a little bit.

DUAL 18" Dayton RSS460HO Custom Build | Klipsch WF-35 | Klipsch WC-24 Centre | Klipsch WS-24 Sides | HSU VTF-15H | Denon AVR-X4100W | Behringer iNuke 6000DSP | Velodyne SMS-1 | JVC RS-46 w/ 128" Elunevision 16:9 1.4 | Custom Bass Traps and Acoustic Panels

HD audio formats and an advanced room correction system should be enough motivation to get your *ss down to FS/BB.wink.gif
