I am getting down to my short list of HT receivers. So many to choose from. I tend to keep things for a long time so I want to get one that will not be obsolete in a few months. From reading I have narrowed my choices to Yamaha 2030, 3030, Pioneer SC-75, SC-77. I have eliminate Onkyo due to their reliability issues and Marantz because I really do not like the appearance of their receivers.(I know, petty). I did not look to much at the Denon line because I was becoming overwhelmed and confused. Obviously the 2030 and the SC-75 are in the same price range approximately but if I can convince myself that I absolutely need the step up to the 3030 or the SC-77, well I just will have to get one of those. I want a receiver that will also do 2 channel stereo very well. For my 2 channel mains I am currently using a Mini-DSP external crossover feeding multiple amplifiers. The surrounds are being fed the old fashioned way. I am ready to buy/order one today, I just need to figure out which one.

Thank you for reading.

I'm in the same boat. What made you choose the 3030 over the 77?

I've narrowed it down to the same four myself.

Although, I think I can eliminate the 3030. I don't need the 11.2 expandability, extra power, nor processing modes.

I am researching the Pioneers. Likely the SC-75 suffices for me.

Given that, I am sorting out the differences between the A2030 and SC-75.

Congrats...

I was originally looking for a Pre-Pro, and the Yamaha CX-A5000 was looking real good to me, but I could not find a deal. That is when I turned to the 3030. It's taking me a long time to get familiar with its many features...looking forward to upgrading my speakers now.
