Well hello !
I really need AVS'ers expertise and knowledge in making the choice on an AVR.
There are so many options out there and I think I have decided on these receivers, I am coming from an ONKYO 805 which I LOVE! never had problems with it until (user error) my wife broke the subwoofer output (don't ask) - now no subwoofer output. can't stand not using my SVS PB12/NSD+2 !
I have read a lot of bad stuff about ONKYO so I don't think I want to take this road. but I was highly considering the TX-NR818, but it looks like I'm going to use another brand.
WHICH ONE?! that is the question. I will only be using this for Blu-ray and some occasional Gaming and Listening to Music.
I need something that will give me an awesome experience with movies. It will be powering the following;
Fronts - Klipsch RF-52
Center - Klipsch RC-62
Rears - Klipsch RS-52
SUB - SVS PB12-NSD/2
I need something that will give a good punch while watching movies - I realize these receivers are entry-level budget so which one will give the best experience for movies?
Is Yamahas YPAO superior to MCAAC or Audyssey MultiEQ? do I really need 4k passthrough?
any input would be helpful!
