Sorry for such a boring question. But I've been away from the receiver market for sometimes and I'm trying to evaluate all 9.2 plus receivers and am left confused.

I am using paradigm reference studio 60 v2 front towers and corresponding center . Paradigm sw-2200 subwoofer and in ceilings and in walls for the rest. It will be a 9.1 setup for now. I will be running front wides.

I would like for it to have the ability to process all of the new bluray audio formats

I see the onkyo TX-NR5010 with 145W of power for each channel
Denon AVR 4520-CI with 150w
Maranta doesn't seem to have any

What other choices do I have? Links to any reviews comparing any of these models is much appreciated.

Any recommendation is greatly appreciated as well.

The Marantz SR7008 is a 9.2 AVR and the Denon X4000 can do 9.2 with an external 2CH amp.

Thank you, the marantz looks very interesting. I was able to grab a second paradigm pw-2200 from eBay today. So I will have a 9.2 setup. As I understand the Audyssey MultEQ XT should help me setup the two subwoofers as well as the rest of the speakers.

That would be Audyssey MultEQ XT32, but it's actually the Audyssey Sub EQ HT feature that can calibrate dual subwoofers.
