I am currently using a 5.1 M&K speaker/sub combo. I am using a 10 yr old Denon and need something new. I have owned Yamaha and Onkyo, but I feel the Denon sounds better. From reading a lot of posts it sounds like a Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K might be my best choice at this price point. Any other brand/model I should consider?

That's a good choice as would be the Onkyo TX-SR706 or 606


Choices ripped from duffman13: Number after model is HDMI inputs


And a step up, 7.1 support and advanced surround decoding, some other features better amps, DACs, etc usually

Sony STR-DG820 4

Onkyo TX-SR606 4

Yamaha RX-V663 2 (7.2 woot!!)

Pioneer VSX-1018 3

Harman Kardon AVR-254 3

Denon AVR-1909 3

Marantz SR-5003 3

I'm looking at the 706 right now. But every time I seem to make a decision, someone makes me second guess my decision. Who knows what I'll end up with.

The Onkyo is tempting, but I have a 2 yr old one that I just didn't like the sound and found it confusing to use. I have read that a lot of people have had heat issues with them, but maybe the 706 has been improved. Does anyone know if the 706 or the Pioneer have on screen volume display?
