I am slowly building a home theater, and over the last few months i have picked up everything i need except a receiver. I will be running JBL studio L series speakers (specifically L890x2, L830x2, LC2, L8400 p).
I have been looking at receivers and i am very torn. I want Dolby True HD via HDMI 1.3a, however, video processing for me is not an issue. I will let my epson 1080ub do that work for me.
I have looked at a bunch of different projectors and asked advice from a few people. They have recommended the Integra 7.8 and Marantz 7002.
I guess my real question is, will these receivers perform better than lets say any of the following receivers even though their specs are the same.
Yamaha RX V-1800
Pioneer 92txh or 94txh
I have heard yes, because of their superior build quality. Any thoughts?
EDIT: BTW the main use will be for BluRay, ps3, xbox 360 as well as DVDs.
