We have a AVR 135 (refurb off ebay) connected to the Fluance AV-HTB with upgraded center and a Dayton 10" Sub (All value recommendations from this forum a few years ago)

We upgraded around this setup last year to a 50" Panasonic Plasma and a BluRay player. (Also have a wii, HD comcast box and VGA laptop ) A Harmony remote takes care of all the complex switching easily.

But recently listening to other audio systems, I feel my receiver is not good enough to get the most out of Fluance speakers. I feel the volume is usually well up -30 to -25 db and the receiver cannot handle the newer blu-ray audio formats. (Dolby-HD etc)

Can you guys recommend a receiver which will provide a pronounced upgrade? (lower the cost the better).

What about the Harman Kardon AVR 1700 for $199 from Best Buy or Fry's?

Thanks I cant seem to find it at that price online at fry or BB. Is it in store only sale?

How does it compare to other choices that I was able to find in my budget

Onkyo 515 (Current Gen:)
Denon 1612 (Previous Gen)
Yamaha V471 (Previous Gen)

I need to have a banana plug posts for all 5 speakers. Most of the entry level current gen systems do not have that
