I'm not to picky, but I do want something up to date, as my current pioneer vsx 819h, just isn't cutting it anymore.

I have Polk monitor 60s, cs2 center, and monitor 40s in the rear, so I won't need a ton of power, but would like blue tooth, wifi, 3d, and something that could be compatible with android and iPhone. Although wifi and blue tooth connectivity would take care of most uses for the phone (music, videos etc)

It doesn't have to be the newest technology, so anything 2012 and up would be fine if there were some good deals out there. But as long as it's a good receiver with those options I mentioned, I would be happy..

Budget is under $500. If possible.

Thanks guys.

So far the one that seems to be really highly rated is this one. Seems to have all the features and comes in right under $400

I'd say the best in your budget is the denon 1912. It has airplay so you'll have to run an ethernet to the avr. But, it's a great avr.

I would go with a Denon. I thought I saw somewhere that Best Buy was blowing out the 2113 model which uses the more advanced MultEQ XT. I don't recall if it has wifi built in, but you can always just get a range extender for $25 and plug it into the ethernet port.
