I love my Marantz (in the signature). i believe i have exelent sound and everithing above in price and ¨quality¨ is more satisfy the non-existent perceptions, than something real.
Oh, I'm very please with my Onkyo TX-NR515 and Energy Take Classic 5.0 with Energy Power 10 Sub too. It is setup as 3.1 in the den. It's a great little system for my kids. The sounds from this combination is crisp/clear. The Energy provide plenty of bass for our small den. This receiver is pack with all the modern options. I'm very please with all my three Onkyo receivers (NR809, RC270 & NR515)......
I would say that depending on budget and intended use, any of Denon's current CI lineup could be the right receiver for just about anybody. The 4520 is amazing, but way too much for my budget and for the most part it doesn't provide anything I'd benefit from (notable exception: Audyssey XT32).
my favourite receiver, im on my 3rd receiver, started with a pioneer vsx - d511, that was all right it had good sound but no hdmi, then i went to an onkyo , cant remember the model number, i was dissapointed with that, it had plenty of boom but that was it, no real defining sounds from all the other speakers. now i have a pioneer vsx-923, has 8 hdmi in, 2 hdmi out, 1 for my 50" plasma and the other for my 100" projector screen. i have it set up as 7.1 and the sound that it produces is really quite good, bought it from jbs when the had a special running.
I love the pre-outs on my SR5004 refurb, but I'm personally fed up with HDMI audio, I can't wait to get rid of receivers altogether in favor of wireless straight from my PC or some transmitter that sits in the line, while still keeping it digital all the way to the amp stage of self-powered speakers.
I believe even lower amperage, but 1 amp stage per speaker, would result in a superior sound due to better integration and power handling independence for each channel.
Also, HDMI 2 is already obsolete for the future, 60hz is not good enough at 4k, to do 3D you'd need two cables, which sucks. Much better I think to keep video and audio as separate as possible, I was a huge fan of putting on the same wire but there have been too many issues and too much extra cost.
I mean, in Windows (and I imagine other sources), you lose audio to your receiver if you shut your TV off upstream from the receiver, since it sends a signal back telling the source that there's no target, so the signal is stopped when only the video is shut off but audio is still desired (e.g. listening to some tunes and turning off my projector while I'm busy doing other stuff).
We'll the best receiver I ever owed was a pioneer elite VSX -49 TXI , but now a days anything Yamaha advantage is what you should own, It is hard to beat for sound quality and build quality.
I owns Energy Take Classic and Micro speakers. It is great compact speakers. The Monoprice 10565 spec is nearly identical to Energy Take Classic. The Energy still looks classier though, but you cannot go wrong with either speaker.....
I loved my Yamaha RX-V667 but left F channel stopped working , After Geek Squad 3 failed attempts to fix store credit was given which went into Pioneer 1020-k.
Between the two hmm both are my Favs

Oh no! He didn't!
I'm just hoping he is actually being sarcastic, and joking around!
I had an expensive Onkyo which did not give very good sound, then after a year of use, broke completely. That was not a happy year.
