The HDMI board of my AVR-3808 is broken, and I'm looking to replace this AV receiver. Which AV receiver would you recommend?
My HT room consists of 4x B&W 602 front and rear speakers, 1x B&W CC6 center, 2x B&W DS3 surround speakers and 1 B&W ASW-1000 sub.
The AV receiver will have to feed 2 HDMI outputs: a Panasonic PT-AE2000 projector and a Samsung tv. If possible, I would like to feed an HDMI signal to the tv without having to power on the AV receiver (in order to make it as easy as possible for my wife).
Primary source for the projector will be an XBMC player and a WII U console. Primary source for the tv will be a tv settop box.
I have looked at Marantz SR6008, Denon AVR-X3000, Onkyo TX-NR626, Yamaha RX-A830 and Yamaha RX-V575. But I have no clue what the best receiver would be for my needs.
- I liked my AVR3808, but the settings and GUI were sometimes not user-friendly (I hope the GUI has improved since then)
- budget: < 800 eur
- as I'm living in Europe, not all models are the same as in the US
I hope you can help me to shed some light on my quest.
