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...

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...
