I'm currently looking for a receiver to power my new setup. The setup will be 4 Polk Monitor 70's with a Polk CS2 as a center. I'm most likely going to add 2 Polk Monitor 60's to complete the 7.1 setup (I wanted to get 2 more Monitor 70's, but I'm having trouble tracking down 2 at a reasonable price).
I was leaning toward the Sony STR-DN1030 A/V Receiver since I can grab one now for $400. I've seen the Pioneer SC-1222-K and a Denon 3312 go for $550, so I'm starting to second guess my Sony choice. Would it be worth it for me to spend the extra $150 for the Pioneer, Denon or something else? I'll mostly be using my setup for watching television, watching movies, and playing video games. I'm not too concerned with wireless abilities since I have cat 6 ethernet lines running to my setup, although I'm not opposed to having things like Airplay and Pandora built in.
I appreciate any help or insight I can get. Thanks.
