I'm sure you get this question ALL THE TIME. I tried searching for some AVR's and I found plenty of reviews.
However- I am not sure what to get, there are so many options out there.
That is why I', asking for help. I think with your expertise, I can get a good recommendation.
This is what I recently purchased. It is going to go in a small living room.
Samsung 55" LED - 1080p -120Hz - 6300 Series -- MODEL# UN55F6300AF
MartinLogan MLT-2 5.1
As you can see, I have pretty basic stuff. I got the Martin Logan's at a price steal, and I am aware that some of them have a sub problem (which is covered under warranty)
*What is the best receiver for under $400 that will power and compliment this system? Now, I am looking to expand in the future so maybe a 7.1 will work for me. I was reading about the HDMI Return channel capabilities, but I don't think my TV supports that. Also, not sure how many watts per channel either... 90/100/105? I don't care much about "eco" receivers, or having multiple Zones. Wireless would be good but not necessary. 4K upscaling is also not necessary but would be a plus for the future. Possibly something that is easy to tune (speaker hz/crossover)
I will be using this combo for Movies (blurays), app streaming (Amazon Prime/Netflix), Sony PS4 Video Game, and some music (ipad/iphone plug in). So basically, for Audio and Video but focusing more on Video.
*What type of wires do I need (14 gauge?) and HDMI cable?
Thank you in advance!
