I am getting ready to move so I figured now would be a good time to upgrade my Receiver as I am going to have to unplug and move everything. Truth be told I have never really been happy with the sound quality of my Denon E300 and I think I am ready for something better. My speakers are the full 5 channel set of the Pioneer Andrew Jones line. SP-FS52 Floor-standing speakers, SP-BS22-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers, and SP-C22 Center-Channel Speaker and a 12in KEF sub (not sure what model). I am considering going 7.1 and getting another set of the SP-BS22-LR's so I probably want to get a 7.1 receiver this time. I don't want to break the bank but I don't want something that sounds mediocre like the E300 either. It seems like with the E300 I can hear everything fine but it's not immersive if that makes any sense. The new place I am moving into also has a much larger room for the TV and it seems like I have to turn up the E300 way too far to get my desired volume level. Seems like it just doesn't have quite enough power for my size of speakers.
