I have had the same Home Theater in a Box (Onkyo HT-R530) setup now for about 7 years and I am looking to upgrade. Keep in mind, I am more then happy with the current sound that I get out of my setup. I am mainly looking to make a upgrade to allow for HDMI switching. I would like at least 2 HDMI outs so I can power both my projector and flat screen in the same room.
The Onkyo TX-NR515 caught my attention because of everything it offers for such a reasonable price at $299. It seems to give everything I need. Being it is this cheap, I can pay cash out right for it. Now the Denon AVR-3313Ci caught my attention because it appears to be a much more powerful receiver and offers some extra features. This receiver I can get through the Military Exchange site on credit at $789. Is the difference in cost between these two receivers worth it or would the lower priced Onkyo suite my needs just fine?
