Need help finding a receiver to fit my needs.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm on a tight budget (less than $300, would like to stay closer to $200) and I'm trying to find a receiver that falls in this price range (probably in the form of a sale or clearance). It's going to be driving a set of Energy RC-Micro speakers and a 10" Dayton SUB-1000 sub. I'm looking for the following features:
  • AirPlay, and automatic switching to AirPlay output when an AirPlay device connects. Preferably even when on standby.
  • Audyssey automatic calibration and dynamic volume. If not Audyssey, similar features with equivalent quality.
  • Optional but preferred: HDMI ethernet, HDMI audio return, HDMI CEC, component video upscaling and HDMI output.

Any chance whatsoever I'll find a receiver that fits this for the price range I'm in? My problem is that most of the receiver I find that fit this bill are more expensive because they're also high-wattage with a ton of other feature sI won't need and meant for a ton of devices (at most, I'll have an Xbox, PS3, and Wii connected). I can handle waiting a month or so and seeing what deals pop up.

Thanks!

Another question: do receivers n this price range have ways of disabling any video delay/processing in order to allow for 0ms of latency? I'm going to be running an Xbox and PS3 through this and I don't want input lag.

there is no input lag. But I don't think there are ANY new receivers that cheap with room correction etc. may be wrong though.

Damn. Looks like I'm going to have up my budget. Especially since the TV I just got only has two HDMI inputs. What the hell, Panasonic.
