I am looking for a new receiver. Currently I am debating between the Onkyo nr609, Onkyo nr616 , Yamaha rxv671, Yamaha rxv 475 and denon avr-1912. I am only going to be using 5.1 chn but dont mind getting a 7.1 if its better. I like all the streaming on the Onkyo but since I will have it hooked up to a media server i can use that for any services the others dont have. Which is going to be the best for sound and is there really a big difference in sound quality between them. Right now I am using my TV speakers because the receiver and speaker I have are old, bad, and not configured properly.

Thanks

I would get the Denon 1912 since it has networking, analog to HDMI video conversion and Audyssey MultEQ room calibration.

Both Onkyos use the lowest version of Audyssey 2EQ which cannot EQ the subwoofer while as afrogt notes, the 1912 uses the more advanced MultEQ with 2x the speaker filter resolution as 2EQ uses and can also EQ the subwoofer. Neither Yamaha can EQ a sub either. So it would seem it's the 1912 with a knockout. smile.gif

Thanks everyone...going to go with the denon. Was just looking at denons new models mainly the 1913 and the e400. I like the idea of having sirius xm and these 2 make that possible plus the android support. Any idea which is better and if they are as good as the 1912?
