I'm looking for a basic receiver. Right now, I only have 2.0, and honestly, we're pretty content with that in this area (may do more of a home theater setup if/when we finish basement). But I need to replace this almost 20-year-old Onkyo receiver as it only has composite video inputs, and I need component and HDMI.


Here are the requirements:

- 4 or more HDMI/component inputs

- $200-$400 budget, preferably on the lower end

- No video processing needed, actually would prefer passthrough

- Does not need to be 3D

- 7.1+ channel not required (5.1 acceptable, or even 2.1/2.0)


Also, would love to find one that auto-senses the source, but I don't think receivers have these built-in (have to go w/ switch to do that).


Here is what I would connect to it:

- HTPC (HDMI)

- PS3 (HDMI)

- Wii (component)

- DVD (component)


Thanks in advance.

If you liked Onkyo, they have some good value receivers. Though I am not sure how much liking your current Onkyo has to do with current models, as so much has changed.

Honestly, as long as it produces decent (but not necessarily theater quality) sound, and serves the purpose well of a good switcher, I would be happy. It's hard finding a "basic" receiver with 4+ HDMI/component inputs though. I would go with something like the TX-SR508, but this seems to have issues.


Anything else along those lines that is more reliable?
