AV Recommendations based on existing layout

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have a living room that is pre wired and I am looking to upgrade the receiver.
(I am below novice in the A/V world so please forgive me if I make an ignorant statement)

Budget is my main focus.. Best bang for the buck. Max budget for Receiver would be $600.00 optimum budget below $400.00. Am considering connecting an HTPC to the receiver.


Here is my current setup:

Components are in my Utility room in a cabinet where all the wiring is terminated.

5.1 surround (the sub has to be powered)

TV hanging on Wall

5 RG6 for Component video and audio

1 RG6 for direct cable connection (homerun from cable outside)

1 Cat 5

1 speaker wire for Center channel

1 4 wire for IR extender



I currently have NS-R5 100 isignia so pretty much anything is an upgrade.

The run from the Equipment cabinet to the TV is about 55' of wire

I would rather not run new wire but I would if there was some compelling reason.

I have my DVR in the cabinet and my Router is located there as well.

I have my bed room A/V run to the same cabinent but am not currently using that setup

I have two Patio speakers also run to the cabinet that I do use. (connected to an AirPlay device and the Insignia)

Goals

1. Update Receiver
2. Make control easier through remote consolidation or Smartphone control
3. Have better surround sound

I am not needing the latest greatest.

Since the receiver is away from the room I guess I will have to use an extender wire for any auto audio set up.

I appreciate all suggestions.

I see this on NewEgg for around $550.00

ONKYO TX-NR717

Have always leaned a little towards Denon..

Any strong opinions on what would be better for my situation!
