Hi Guys, I have an Onkyo TX SR600 with the Infinity Entra Point Five HTS speakers all from 2002. My Onkyo is dying and I need a new receiver. I am looking at the Marantz NR1403, Denon AVR1613 and the Yamaha V473. My budget is 400.00 and I cannot exceed that price point. I do not need airplay or any internet connectivity, just want a clean full sound that will blow me away. I am leaning towards the Marantz, but I am afraid of the 50w rating. Should I be concerned of such a low wattage. Will this be enough to power my Home Theatre system and produce enough power to give the speakers all they need. In terms of loudness, will the receiver be able to get really loud, or am I better off with a higher wattage, such as 80 watts per channel.
All I need in a receiver is this. Great sound, clear sound, Standby passthrough, 3D passthrough, no degradation of video, reliability. Thanks for the help.
