Hi all -

My Yamaha 465 blew and I am looking for a replacement.

Current Setup (20x20 room)
Panasonic Viera 42in 1080
XBOX 360 (HDMI)
Directv Cable Box
Energy Take 2 w/ Polk Sub

Simple setup, just want everything set up through HDMI.

Local Bestbuys (open box) show a couple options, would love to know people's thoughts, trying to keep price down. No 3D right now, but wouldn't mind the flex in the future.

Pioneer - 700W 5.1-Ch. 3D Pass-Through A/V Home Theater Receiver
Model: VSX-522-K

$151.99 (FL)

Denon - 600W 5.1-Ch. 3D Pass Through A/V Home Theater Receiver - Black
Model: AVR1612

$84.99 (LAN)

Denon - 550W 5.1-Ch. 3D Pass Through A/V Home Theater Receiver
Model: AVR1513

$168.99 (LAN)

Harman Kardon - AVR 1700 500W 5.1-Ch. A/V Home Theater Receiver
Model: AVR 1700

$149.99 (GAT)

Denon - 600W 5.1-Ch. A/V Home Theater Receiver
Model: AVR591

$96.99 (CP)

Hi there, to me the fact that your old AVR blew is a concern. Do you know what happened specifically? And are the speakers okay? Because if one is damaged it might even damage any replacement AVR.

Having said that, you might want to make a list of the things that are a priority for you in a new AVR. If it's simply a case of the old one blew because you cranked it to get desired volume levels, then perhaps none of the AVRs listed would satisfy your need for higher volume.

Hi runnin' -

Typical widespread HDMI issues with the model. Repair quoted me $200 for the fix. Never pushed volume close to even 50%, was no need.

Just looking for quality receiver that will last 2-3 years, won't lose any picture, good surround, etc. Easy set-up is a plus. Honestly all I need. Don't care about 3D (bonus though for future), iPods, streaming...thanks!

If you can get a Denon 1612 for $85 you should jump on it as long as they include all the accessories like microphone and remote.

Energy Takes are kinda small for a 20 x 20 room in my opinion.

Thanks! I actually think it is smaller when I think about it. wink.gif Room sounded good with the previous setup.
