I think I've narrowed my search down between 2 units.
I found a decent deal on a Onkyo TX-NR828 and a Marantz SR5008.
I wish I could get the SR6008, but I have a credit with BestBuy and they don't offer the 6008 ATM.
The Onkyo has more features, but I have concerns with the HDMI failures I've read about.
Power amps on both appear to be similar but I could be wrong.
I want something that will be as future proof as possible. The 828 is less than $800.00 and the 5008 is $899.00
any thoughts on the 2,
By the way. Inputs to the amp aren't a major concern, I don't have many (3-4 at the most)
and don't use multi zone.
I'm looking for the best sound between the 2 and best features.
