New receiver, old speakers
My home cinema setup is 11 years old. Its working fine and I'm still happy with the way it sounds but the receiver is pre-HDMI and that's becoming more of an inconvenience. I posted here a couple of months back about a replacement receiver and I'm settled on a Marantz SR5008 or possibly the Denon ARV X2100W if the price drops a little. I'm not an expert and I do a lot of reading of various forums. People seem to say that there is no point in an expensive receiver if your speakers are not good enough. I've got no intention of replacing my speakers because I'm happy with them so my question is.... am I wasting money on a SR5008 and should I buy a cheaper receiver?
My current setup is:- Marantz SR5300, Mission M73 mains, Gale 3060b rears and a Gale 20 centre.
