I think I may need to buy a new receiver to work with my 65x850c, as my old Sony has suddenly quit twice on me now for no reason at all, shutting down everything. It's no big deal, because when the new 4k Blu-ray players come out around October I will need a 4k receiver. Audio isn't that big a deal to me, and I will never have more than a 5.1 system, so it looks to me as if the Yamaha 575 would fit the bill. Officially, it has 4k and 3D pass-through, might do a better job of handling audio than my old receiver, and is economically priced at around $275 or so. But it may not be such a simple buy, because of required codes and such. And that price gives me the feeling that it's either outdated technology or a badly-built model. So if anyone has an opinion on this receiver, or would recommend what they feel would be a better 5.1 unit, I'd like hearing from you.
Thanks in advance for all information and advice.
