I am in need of an upgrade. I currently have the denon AVR 891. I want a receiver in the 1000 + - 300 dollar range that will be able to hook external amps to for two stereo listening. I have looked at the pioneer sc 65, some denon 3313 model as well as the marantz. sr 6007 and sr 5007I listen to music and watch HT movies tv 50/50... is there a different one i should be looking at. Also i would be running a 7.1 set up. Thanks for all your help I am new to audio stuff.

The Pioneer SC-1522 at Costco for $599 which is a great deal. Very similar to the SC-65 for much less.

If no Costco available try the Yamaha RX-A820 which newegg has on sale for $499, regularly $899.

you'll probably get a better price on the 3313 plus the Denon has HDMI for Zone2.

I'd go with the 3313. Also of note is the new denon x4000...might be pushing the upper end of your budget, but it surely seems like a very good avr.

I'd also suggest looking at the onkyo 818.

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!
