Just got a good deal on a set of Polk RM6750 speakers but I'm wondering if i definitely need a receiver (and what kind) to get the most out of these speakers. I have an Xbox 360 and a sony blu-ray player. im looking to spend around 250 but am willing to spend around 300-350 if worth it. I don't know much about home audio so any information can help!

The Pioneer can take any input and output thru HDMI. Onkyo 508 cannot.


The Pio 1020 does 1080p upscaling from any source. Not on Onkyo 508


The Pio has a USB input where you can directly connect your iPod/iPhone. You'd need a ipod cradle with the Onkyo 508.


the Pio 1020 has an ethernet port for internet radio.


The Pioneer 1020 is really a direct competitor to the 608. The 508 competes with the 820 or 920.

the link to the sale price at Amazon.com has a limited life. No telling how long they will have stock and keep the sale price.


They had a similar great sale price on the VSX-1120 and it sold out quickly and the deal is no-more.
