I am looking for some advice on a new receiver and since I can't seem to find reviews comparing and explaining it well enough I have come here. I am looking to keep it around $1500 and here are the main things I am looking for:
At least 4 HDMI inputs
Upconversion output to HDMI from any source (Any downfalls to this? My receiver and equipment will be on a seperate wall from the TV and looking to just run the HDMI cable for everything)
I have been looking at the following receivers and can't really make a decision between them:
Marantz SR7002, Yamaha RX-V1800, and the Pioneer VSX-94TXH.
I have a yamaha receiver now and it's been fine so far. I don't care for the DSPs that it has built in and I know the Yamaha has plenty more of those compared to the Marantz, but it doesn't do much for me. I also never really cared for the Yamaha receiver remote.
Anyways, enough rambling. If anyone has any advice, experience, anything to say on this, please let me know. Thanks.
