Yet another recommendation thread

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
There are a million (give or take a few) of these a day, so my apologies in advance.

Speakers: Energy C-300 set (2xC300, 2xC50, 1xC-C50)
Subwoofer: Premier Acoustic PA-120 (shipping in a few weeks)

Criteria:
  • At least 3 HDMI inputs (PS3, X-Box 360, and DVR).
  • Somewhat future proofed.
  • No plans to upgrade to 7.1 anytime soon.
  • Primary use is for movies.
  • Spending limit: $500.

Given my criteria, I've narrowed it down, based on these forums, to the Denon AVR1909 or Onkyo TX-SR606. I can find the Onkyo locally for $470 and the Denon online for $486.75. I'm open to other brands in a similar price range if they will meet my criteria.

The other option is to wait on the new Onkyo 507 that was recently announced. I'm not sure if it would be worth the wait or not.

Thank you for any feedback,
D

The 1909 is probably your best bet, but the Onkyo is great too. A couple others include the Pioneer 1018 and HK 254.

I found a local seller on Craig's List that has a new 606 for $400 (posted today) that he received as a gift. I'm going to take the plunge for that one barring any problems with it.

Thanks for the feedback!
