It's a 5.1 set I got on sale on Halloween. I will be getting two more Satellite Speakers to make it 7.1: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=109&cp_id=10906 (Maybe down the line I will add another Sub for 7.2 which a simple RCA splitter should don for that.... Maybe as it may be overkill since this will be my room which is not that big. LOL!)
Kinda a noob to this. Been awhile lol.
I was going to get the Yamaha RX-V573BL for $288.88 but had heard many people say Audyssey was the thing to get in an Audio Receiver. That and I believe the Watt output would have been too high.
I ordered the Onkyo TX-NR616 as it was on sale for around $300 and got the extra two year warranty for $12.
I was like oh cool Audyssey and then realized it was 2EQ (no auto-tuning sub) and not MultEQ (which does) after it shipped. Ugh.
Then I also found a Denon AVR-1913 for $300 with free shipping: http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/DENAVR1913/DENON-AVR-1913-7.1ch-Home-Theater-Receiver-w/AirPlay-3D-ready/1.html however it's only 90 watts per channel and these Speakers recommend 100 which the Onkyo is.
So manually tuning the Sub shouldn't be that difficult? THX Select2 Plus sounds cool. The Onkyo TX-NR616 is the #1 bestseller on accessories4less.com
I can just update the firmware and read up on how to manually tune the Sub. It shouldn't be that difficult right? Should I give it a few days of testing before coming to a conclusion? Then if the Receiver does not perform how I'd like see if the Denon AVR-1913 is still available?
Or just return it and get the Denon AVR-1913 asap? Which the lack of 10watts per channel shouldn't be an issue?
I want to keep the budget below $330. I had just got the Onkyo TX-NR616 Yesterday. Since it's Friday I might as well just hook it up and mess with it. I know to upgrade the firmware first as I heard about the problems this had with previous firmware versions.
