need help choosing a reciever

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
just bought audioengine p4's and need a reciever to use them

ill be hooking up my cable box, dvd player, blu ray player (really wanna take advantage of the hd audio from these), ps3, wii u, and apple tv to it so i need 6 hdmi inputs

will also be hooking up a dreamcast so i need something that has composite in/out ports

so far from my limited research the harman kardon 1700 has seemed to be good but anyone else have any recomendations?


ill be upgrading from the sony ct 100 soundbar

Six HDMI inputs means that you'll have to buy a pretty expensive receiver. The Denon 3313CI is $1200. The Yamaha RX-A1020 is about the same (it has seven HDMI inputs).

If you don't need all of the other features that those models have, you could save yourself a lot of money by buying an entry-level receiver and putting your less often-used devices on an HDMI switcher.

For 6 hdmi, cheapest options other than AVR 1700 would be the Pioneer 1022 and a refurb Onkyo 616. You can get either of these for under $300. Keep in mind that Onkyo has had reliability problems of late.

What is your actual budget? There are other options.

Yamaha rx-v671 or 673. They both have 6 HDMI. One is in the front though. Very nice.

Where can you get the 1700 for $300?

I would check out accessories4less.com for refurbished units. They have a Denon 1613 for $250 with 5 HDMI, networking, Audyssey MultEQ, and USB. They also have the 1612 for $200. The 1712 is probably the best option but I haven't seen it for less than $400 recently.

best buy

Amazon had the 671 for $299 for 1 day and it is back to $499 now. If you can catch it at that it would be your best bet but who knows how long that may be. If you can get the 1700 for $300 new then I would jump on it. 6 HDMI for $300 is a rare bird.

will it work with the audioengine p4's though cause they are 4 ohms

They should work fine with these receivers. Audioengine lists 4-8 ohms for nominal impedance. Unless you plan to really crank the volume there should be no issues.

Yes. You can set the receiver to either 6 ohm or 8 ohm. 6 will get you closer and help to make up some of the difference but either way will work.
