Trying to put a small home theater system together that will also sound good for music. Plan to use it 50/50 on movies and music. I am planning to get 2 small Energy Cb-5's and CC-5 center. I have a polk audio sub that I will use until i can get a new one. Budget is a big concern right now. I will hook up bluray and cable via HDMI, but would like for the receiver to not have to be on if I want just the TV speakers to work (is this called standby passthrough?). I would also like to get an ipod dock for which ever I choose. I know the Insignia says it isn't Ipod ready, but I read somewhere that the Onkyo ipod dock can be used with it. is this correct? With that said both of these receivers are nearly same in price this week. Which one? Should I bump up to the Denon 591? Is it worth the extra $150 price increase? Thanks!
