I currently have a HK AVR 254 and am ready to upgrade. Can anyone recommend something in the $600 category or less? I'm ok with sale items, or refurbished items as long as its from a certified dealer.
The constraint I have is size, when I looked for a TV stand, I found one that barely can fit the AVR 254, has maybe 1/2 inch space above and 1 inch on both sides. So something thats has size of : 17-5/16" W x 6-1/2" H x 15" D *this is size of AVR254* or less is preferred.
I have no particular needs and primarily use a 5.1 setup, so the best available with the newest features would be great.
I bought a Pioneer 62FD bluray player and it has 2 HDMI outputs, I hooked the video directly to TV and I couldn't believe the video quality difference. Maybe the AVR254 processing is just junk because the video quality was much different when I had a single hdmi going to AVR. Is this the AVR fault?
