Help Picking a new Receiver...Been out of the game a while!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I’ve been out of the Home Theater game for a long time. My last TV is 10 years old this month (Mits 65613 behemoth). I just bought a replacement yesterday. I bought the 92840 as I’ve been eyeing it for a while.

With that, I need a new receiver. My current one (Yamaha with no HDMI) is 7+ years old doesn’t have HDMI. I’ve narrowed it down to what I want to spend to these 4 models. However, if there is one for just a bit more, I’m open for suggestions. The following models are what I’ve being looking at.

Pioneer SC-61
Yamaha RX-A1020
Onkyo TX-NR818
Denon AVR-3313CI

I haven’t fully compared features to each other but I’m looking for:

-At least 6 HDMI inputs (I’d prefer say 8 for expandability but it’s not a necessity)
-3d passthrough
-Audyssey/YPAO/MCACC type calibration (I’m not even sure if these are even close being the same.) Do they include Mics?
-Video up conversion (from old RCA/Component connections)
-Airplay would be nice but not a necessity.
-Good menu system (I never liked my current Yamaha one but I’m sure it’s changed.)
-A decent “iOS” would also be nice for control on my ipad.

Off the top of my head this is all I can think of. I’m wanting to order something in the next couple of days. Appreciate any suggestions and feedback!

Audyssey XT32 is the way to go if it's within your budget. Denon's are very Mac-centric so would be ideal for you with your iPad. I'd try to find a AVR-4311CI, it has great amps for all but those who have more than two 4 ohm speakers and is on clearance.

Thanks for the info! I assume the differences in the 3311 and 3313 are minor? Ill have to take a look.
