It definitely time to upgrade my ageing Pioneer VSX-D810S. I'm tired of using a HDMI switcher and my wife won't use the projector by herself because of all the cord switching and button pushing it takes to get things right.
I see the Refurbished Denon 1712 on accessories4less.com for $280 and I'm wondering if its right for me or if there is anything out there for the same (<$300) price that would fit me better. I would like it to be compatible with modern blu ray lossless audio formats and be of good sound quality. 7.1 isn't completely necessary, but I would like to have it if possible. The only thing that I can see what it doesn't have is the ability to output component video (from a wii) through the HDMI. It would be really nice to only have to run ONE cord to my projector.
The receiver will be used for Blu ray (HDMI), my HTPC (HDMI), a Wii (component), eventually HD cable TV (HDMI?), and eventually a next gen gaming system (HDMI).
Any other suggestions, or is the 1712 a good buy?
