Hi, thanks for reading. I'm looking for a new receiver for around $400. I tried the Onkyo HT-RC430 and I hated the sound, I didn't think it was any better than the Vizio's TV speakers. So here are the ones I'm currently considering. I would love to hear opinions on each, or if there are any other suggestions feel free! I know sound is subjective, but I'd still appreciate opinions. If anyone has any reliability issues with any listed would love to hear about that, too. If you have questions for me, ask away. It's too cold for me to go outside today so I'll be here all day!! I really appreciate it!! Sound quality and reliability are the most important factors for me. Wont be running surround immediately, so looking for 5.1. 7.1 is fine although I'd most likely never use that many speakers.
