Coldmachine, thanks for the info!
I have been spending quite a bit of time reading reviews of the Onkyo/Integra, Arcam, NAD, and Denon receivers. I have ruled out the NAD for now based on the number of comments I read regarding QA problems.
The current Integra and Onkyo seem to be good as far as reviews go. I currently have an Integra 7.2 and am looking for a replacement. It has been trouble free and overall a great receiver for the money.
Just curious how was the video switching between the Onkyo and Arcam? Everyone is talking about the Reon in the 905 but not sure if it actually looks any better than the Arcam. As I would probably just go direct from source to TV for now anyway it sounds like the Arcam may be a better choice.
Looking forward to reading a more detailed post from you on the Arcam vs. Onkyo...
I have seen several folks also discussing Denon vs. Arcam and it seems to go back and forth based Denon features and not a large "noticable" difference in SQ for the money. Not sure how true this is.
Also, would you mind PM'ing me with info on expected street price for the AVR 350?
