Beginning to set up my first non-HTIB set up. My Polk New Monitor 65Ts are on the way. (Planning to work up to 5.1 gradually as budget allows.)
I was pretty deadset on the Onkyo TX-NR515 as a receiver due to several recommendations but after further research online it seems that line (515, 615 and one other, I believe) were plagued by some pretty bad HDMI issues and a high fail right.
I'd rather not take the unnecessary risk of buying a flaky product so I'm trying to find a good budget alternative, preferably an Onkyo. It seems like you get more bang for your buck with them.
My budget is around $300. I'd rather not go much over but if a little bit will make a world of difference, it's doable.
I've been interested in the TX-NR509 and HT-RC360. Any opinions on those or other recommendations?
