I am thinking very seriously of getting one of these units, but am unsure which to consider. I would like to get something that will last for some time as far as features, but do not want to spend more than I really need to or should.
TV - 26" Samsung HDTV with DVI (1080i) input as well as Component, S-Video, Composite. Very happy with the picture from HDMI switcher.
HD-DVD Player - Toshiba HD-A2
Blu-ray Player - Sony PS 3
Game Machines - XBox 360, PS 3
Speakers - 7.1 available
What I want to do:
1. I would like to of course connect the above to the receiver that will give me the best audio/video possible for my current equipment.
2. I do not plan to change anything in the near future (i.e. could be a year or 2 before I upgrade my TV or HD-DVD player).
The Onkyos that I am considering:
I have given thought to purchasing all units from the 605 to the 875 (I will mention that I have a tax refund that is burning a hole in my savings account, so within reason money is not a drastic consideration).
Does it make sense with what I now have (and intend to keep for a while) to go as high as the 875, or does it make more sense to go with a unit like the 605/705? Then replace that with whatever the latest and greatest technology is at that time? Or of course, should I just forget about this all together?
Forgive the long winded posting, but just wanted to provide as much info as I could think of that might help in making any suggestions.
Thank you very much for your thoughts.
