So I've finally purchase my speaker and now just looking for receiver to complete the setup.
I have around $500 left to spend, I have been shopping around and I am told Onkyo has a smoother sound than Denon so have been looking at their range.
The 818 is now available for $700.. I would be maybe willing to stretch to that as I am a relative newbie and from what I've read audyssey xt32 would help get the best out of my system?
I like the number of hdmi I inputs, as at the moment I need 4 and will be adding in future. Also I need at least 2 optical inputs for my PC and Blu ray, although maybe the hdmi cable can handle that from my Bluray?
I'm open to suggestions. I'm crap at budgeting, I generally start by thinking I can do with a cheaper item then find myself being convinced by brands such as THX certified, Audyssey Xt32 etc.
My speakers are 6ohm if that matters. I have read that 8ohm receivers will handle this fine.
Any help or recommendations is greatly appreciated.
