I just dropped about $3.5k and built my first home theater (speakers and projector). It's a Klipsch setup, I hope I'm happy and the neighbors aren't too unhappy as I have two common walls in the living room
I am trying to find a receiver that does the following (in order of importance):
Required: Must power Klipsch RF-82's, RC-52, RW-10d and RS-52's. These are 100W-150W RMS each or so (400w-600w peak).
Required: Must convert analog inputs to HDMI (want only 1 HDMI out cable to projector)
Optional: 4k upscaling (really want this for futureproofing). 1080p upscaling at minimum.
Optional: Mobile App that allows wireless streaming with Spotify from phone?
Optional: Would like 2 sub preouts
Optional: Wireless: Bluetooth? DLNA? Airplay? Something so that it's future proof.
Optional: Multi-room music: Dual zone audio (only output to outside speakers when guests are over)
Optional: Dual zone viewing (watch two different inputs on two different tv’s)
My budget is $600 (give or take a couple hundred), I'd prefer to spend less as always. I don't know all the cool features receivers do these days, I'm still researching. Anyways, I have $800 in Amazon gift cards I need to spend so any help doing so is appreciated. I'd like to leave some $ for cabling
P.S. am I missing any cool features of Receivers in that list? The first one I found is the Onkyo TX-NR626
. Seems to fit the bill?
