Thinking of replacing my Denon 1312, but don't want to break the bank.
So a few years ago, for around 120$, I got a Denon 1312. It's served me fine, and I have no complaints. I also have a Denon 1712 I use for my main room. That cost me 250$ used, I believe. Fair price, and I think the Audessy thing is nice to have, though given the layouts of my rooms, it never seems to come out right.
Anyways, I'm upgrading my PC Speaker set from RC Micro's + Velodyne VX11 to a NHT Superone(L,R), SuperZero(RS,LS, and a VS 1.2 for my Center. So it got me kind of thinking...perhaps a newer receiver would be better to make use of these? I'm unsure. I really don't wanna break around 200$ for a receiver, so refurbished, used, ect. I've gone Denon because I got recommendations here that it has a nice neutral sound, most people told me to go for that.
The 1312 has enough power for my usage. No real complaints about it, I'd guess. It's just with all the new speakers and them being a real set instead of HTIB EnergyTakes, I figured it might deserve a bump, but should it serve?
