Receiver choice Onkyo 616 vs Denon 1613

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Picking up a receiver for my mom that will be pushing a 3.1 setup for the time being (maybe 5.1 in the future if i convince her). I was pretty set on an Onkyo 616, good feature set, cheap, should do everything she needs. Then I noticed its only Audyssey 2EQ. The Denon 1613 has less features but has Multi EQ, so I am trying decide if it is worth losing the features for the better Audyssey implementation. Thoughts?

It depends, what features does she need?

What devices is she connecting to the receiver? Are they all HDMI?

Which is more important to her .... features (Onkyo) or better audio (Denon)?

She is mainly using it for TV, Movies, and sometimes music. She will have a Blu Ray player and HD STB hooked to it at the moment, so no need for analog up conversion. I may give her a Wii if she wants it, but not that worried about up converting that signal.

Edit: As far as whats important to her, not much lol. She is relying on me to get everything for her. Honestly I dont think she will notice either way =O
