What Are Your Favorite AV Receivers? - Page 7

post #181 of 201

I love my Marantz (in the signature). i believe i have exelent sound and everithing above in price and ¨quality¨ is more satisfy the non-existent perceptions, than something real.

Oh, I'm very please with my Onkyo TX-NR515 and Energy Take Classic 5.0 with Energy Power 10 Sub too. It is setup as 3.1 in the den. It's a great little system for my kids. The sounds from this combination is crisp/clear. The Energy provide plenty of bass for our small den. This receiver is pack with all the modern options. I'm very please with all my three Onkyo receivers (NR809, RC270 & NR515)......

Marantz SR7008. Easy to setup and sounds fantastic with Audyssey MultiEQ XT32. Definite upgrade over my old Pioneer avr.

I bought two Denon receivers not long ago: a 2113ci and a 2313ci. I love them both. The 2313 powers my basement theater, and the 2113 is in my living room. Both are set up for 5.1 plus a 2-channel zone two, in my garage and on my deck, respectively. The differences between the two are minor, and honestly I could swap them and hardly notice the difference. I love that I can control them with an app on my smartphone (worth noting: the Android app is buggier than the iOS app). Everyone complains about the GUI, but I think it's fine (maybe they're complaining about the old GUI?).

I would say that depending on budget and intended use, any of Denon's current CI lineup could be the right receiver for just about anybody. The 4520 is amazing, but way too much for my budget and for the most part it doesn't provide anything I'd benefit from (notable exception: Audyssey XT32).

I'm a staunch Yamaha fan boy. There stuff never breaks, sounds great, and deliver the power when needed.

I've had a Yamaha AVR for years, and I'm growing tired of it. My plan is the Marantz SR5008 this spring when the 2014's get announced and the prices drop.

my favourite receiver, im on my 3rd receiver, started with a pioneer vsx - d511, that was all right it had good sound but no hdmi, then i went to an onkyo , cant remember the model number, i was dissapointed with that, it had plenty of boom but that was it, no real defining sounds from all the other speakers. now i have a pioneer vsx-923, has 8 hdmi in, 2 hdmi out, 1 for my 50" plasma and the other for my 100" projector screen. i have it set up as 7.1 and the sound that it produces is really quite good, bought it from jbs when the had a special running.

Makes me smile.

I love the pre-outs on my SR5004 refurb, but I'm personally fed up with HDMI audio, I can't wait to get rid of receivers altogether in favor of wireless straight from my PC or some transmitter that sits in the line, while still keeping it digital all the way to the amp stage of self-powered speakers.

I believe even lower amperage, but 1 amp stage per speaker, would result in a superior sound due to better integration and power handling independence for each channel.

Also, HDMI 2 is already obsolete for the future, 60hz is not good enough at 4k, to do 3D you'd need two cables, which sucks. Much better I think to keep video and audio as separate as possible, I was a huge fan of putting on the same wire but there have been too many issues and too much extra cost.

I mean, in Windows (and I imagine other sources), you lose audio to your receiver if you shut your TV off upstream from the receiver, since it sends a signal back telling the source that there's no target, so the signal is stopped when only the video is shut off but audio is still desired (e.g. listening to some tunes and turning off my projector while I'm busy doing other stuff).

That was when Pioneer Elite meant something. One of the few receivers rated with all channels driven specs. Pretty rare these days...

I just went from a vsx 1120k to sc1223k, love them both, no to get either the mono 10565 or the energy take 5s.
Any thoughts?

I owns Energy Take Classic and Micro speakers. It is great compact speakers. The Monoprice 10565 spec is nearly identical to Energy Take Classic. The Energy still looks classier though, but you cannot go wrong with either speaker.....

Bose is a good brand when it comes to expensive home theater systems. The Cinemate series is great for plugging in many devices and provides good sound quality and enchanced picture.
