I currently use an Onkyo TX-SR707 receiver. I am moving soon and wish to change receivers for convenience. I will be using a small system in a Condo and don't need a ton of volume. The speakers will be Paradigm Titans and Atoms as well as a PDR-10 and CC-150. The center will probably get an upgrade soon as well. The television will be a 3d Panasonic plasma. What I would like to accomplish is 3d/passthrough of the HDMI so that I may have a single HDMI running from the receiver to the TV and can choose if I want to listen via the TV or receiver. Power requirements are small due to the condo living situation but the power of my current receiver is the benchmark I would like to hit or exceed. The local shop that deals in Marantz, Denon, Anthem, and used to do Rotel is pushing me in the direction of a Sony ES model STR-DA1800ES. My biggest concern there is most of the Sony products I have owned have been crap as far as reliability goes. Build quality has never seemed their strong suit. To be fair it is almost always products with lasers that have failed early. I appreciate being able to save whatever money I can but do not want to sacrifice sound quality. Being able to dock an ipod/iphone 4s is a must as well.
