Hello All, hope everyone had a great Christmas. I recently purchased an RX-V773. I love it, its great. I have posted here before about the lack of power. I upgraded from a RX-V2600 that boasted 130watts/channel. I love all the upgrades the 773 offers, but.... Today I saw a listing for an RX-A2020 which has 140watts/channel and 3 zones. I know sometimes companies can hype up their brands and add special names to receivers to make them sound better, like Aventage, Elite, etc. My question to you all is, will it be worth it to upgrade to the 2020? I would need to sell my 773 and come up with probably another $300. I would love the 3rd Zone for the garage and the extra power would be nice. Besides that I don't think I see anything different from the 773. My plan is to have Klipsch Reference series towers as my fronts, preferably the dual 8" ones. Is the 773 going to be enough to run these towers and I should use the $300 towards getting the towers or work on upgrading the receiver. I know its hard to answer a question like this, I guess what I am looking for is more of your opinion. Would you upgrade?
