I currently have a Denon AVR-1612 which i really like. But one thing i did not take into account is i love listening to my music while watching baseball, This Unit does not have multi funtion to be able to do this. Here are a couple Receivers that are around $230 shipped on Amazon and all seem to have this function, Plus internet radio and a zone 2 which i would love to hook up 2 outdoor speakers with.
Onkyo TX-NR515 and 616. The 515 seemed to have better reviews on Amazon but both seemed to have quite a few negatives for firm ware updates and bad HDMI.
Yamaha RX V671
Cheers and thanks for your input
