I'm interested in getting another receiver.Right now I have an Onkyo tx-sr507.It seems to work fine and sound good for ht and ok for music.This new receiver would be for another room and possibly my mancave if we get a house next year.I have a few options I would like on it,but many aren't that big of a deal.I would probably be fine with 5.1 but might like a 7.1 if there is room.I would like a 2nd zone(powered,my Onkyo has this),I don't need many hdmi ports(maybe 4 tops),I would like to play sacd's through it(my Onkyo does dsd over hdmi).I have been looking at several options and would like help in narrowing the field down some more.I assume that ht would be fine and would like a good receiver for music.Onkyo - tx-nr609 , ht-rc360 , tx-nr616 , tx-nr515 , tx-sr608. Denon avr-890 and avr-2310. I don't see a need for pre-outs. I also don't need 3d but would like hdmi pass through in standby mode. Thanks for any help or info with narrowing my choices down. Right now the avr-890 is my favorite , but I like my onkyo and haven't had any hdmi problems , although it does get quite warm.
