Suggestions for $1000 Surround Receiver?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
It's time to retire my Panasonic XR-55. I want to find something new that has at least the same audio quality and some new features.

What Receiver would you suggest based on the following requirements?
  • Drive 6.0 surround speakers
  • Bi-Amp front speakers
  • Not too much heat generated (It got to sit in a cabinet)
  • At least 4 HDMI input and one output.
  • At least 2 S/PDIF in.

Shoutcast support would be nice, but not required.

What would you suggest? What should I look for?

The Receiver will drive NHT 2.5 fronts, matching center and three NHT Super Zero at the back. The video will be sent to an Epson TW5910.

Since you're in Sweden its hard to say without knowing the prices over there.

If you were in the USA I'd say the Pioneer SC-1522 at Costco for $599. Equivalent to the Elite SC-65.

You may also want to try AVForums which is European based.

Thanks, I'll try that as well.

Do you own this Receiver yourself?

Nope, but I've seen in it Costco and have read thru the 1522 owners thread here. It gets high ratings for bang for the buck and its amp section.

I have a 4 year old Denon 2809/989 as my main receiver.
