Hi everyone,


Just joined the forum. I'm looking for a new receiver to replace an old Harmon-Kardon AVR247 for use with a BenQ W1070 projector. I don't care about any internet streaming features and given the choice would rather pay for higher quality components and a slim design. Budget is around $700.


I'd appreciate any suggestions, thanks!



  • 5+ HDMI inputs

  • Component input

  • Composite input
  • Analog to HDMI up-conversion (w/ OSD)

  • Dynamic range audio (whispers and explosions aren't good for apartment living)
  • Remote control via mobile apps (Ethernet)
  • 3D compatible


Nice to have

  • Bluetooth audio receiver

  • Option to play multiple audio inputs simultaneously


  • MHL
  • Slim profile
  • Silver/white case (instead of black)


Don't care

  • AirPlay
  • Pandora/Spotify/etc
  • USB storage/phone support
  • Wifi

In the U.S., the Yamaha RX-S600 comes in any color you want as long as it's black. However, if you're in Europe, it's available in titanium. Go to page 12 of this link.

If it has Bluetooth its gonna have all the networking streaming stuff too.

Doubt you'll find anything in white or silver. At least not in north america.

Look at the Yamaha RX-S600

Or the Marantz slimline receivers.
