Howdy trohan,
Welcome to the forums.

I cannot speak for the other brands but the Pio VSX-1122 works well for me. Plenty of power to drive my inefficient speakers loudly w/o clipping.

I would recommend Denon or Onkyo.

I have two sub woofers so I need a 7.2 system that is why I am not going to go with the Denon 2112
Also the speakers are I have are:
Pair of Polk Tsi 200s-Rear
Polk Tsi cs20-Center
Pair of 201 Bose Bookself Speakers-Sides
Pair of Polk Rti A9s-Front
Two BIC America V-1220 12-Inch 430-Watt Down-Firing Powered Subwoofers

A simple splitter will turn the 2112 into a 7.2 receiver. At this price point, there's no difference between a 7.1 + splitter and a 7.2 receiver.

If you're considering the 515, I'd also look at the 609. There are some good prices out there. Given your options though, I'd get the 2112.

I would go with the Yammy 673, the 671 is a nice receiver and they added some nice new features like Airplay on the 673. This would go very well with the Polks.

Yep! I have the Yamaha 867 7.2 receiver and actually Yamaha just split the sub pre-out into 2 for 2 subs but we can't control the 2 subs individually. So Yamaha calling it 7.2 receiver was a bit misleading.

Edit: IMO, 2 HDMI ARC OUT's would be more desirable than 2 sub OUT's.

+1 for Yamaha. I have a 10 year old HTR-5635 and a 1 year old RX-V667 and those two are awesome. For me Reliability is right up there with sound quality.......and Ymaha delivers on both.
