It is an Onkyo TX-NR616. It came out in mid 2012 so it is a little older. This is kind of an in-betweener purchase. I wanted to get a receiver that is full 4k ready, like a Denon X4100 but can't...

I have 5 minx 20 speakers and a Mirage sub. I just got a new Onkyo AVR to replace an old Denon that died. This receiver does not allow the sub's crossover setting to be set by the receiver, so what...

Now leaning toward the Denon x2100. Wifi, 4k, 2.0 hdmi inputs. Seems like $200 well-spent for future proofing. Anything else in the $700 price range I should consider?

Since I have AppleTV and a wifi BlueRay player, would I get any benefit from having wifi in the receiver? I don't necessarily need zone 2 to play an independent source since my patio is right off...

I think 120 would be a minimum. I set my crossover at 150, which is what Audyssey recommended when I ran it. It was the same for the Orbs and the Minx.

I had an Orb Mod2 5.1 system for many years and for the size, they sounded very good. I recently changed to the Minx system with 5 20's and a Mirage MM8 sub which sounds better to me. There is an...

Vanns has the MM8 for a great price. I'm very happy with mine. It doesn't overpower the Minx and blends in very nicely. I haven't heard the X300 either but the specs seem very close and I couldn't...
