My 10yr.old sony str-av1020 has line in, input problems ( video 1,2, cd, dat NG). Phono input works fine . I don't think it's worth putting money into. One feature I really love is the DRLC function, multi room / multi source extented external dongle + remote, no additional amp required! Newer receivers offer much more in both features and sound quality, but if my sony wasn't on the rocks I'd live with it. I'm looking for a new receiver to input cable hdtv on rptv component vid. 1. dvd and HI-DEF htpc to share receivers component input/output switcher, on rptv component vid. 2. (only 2 component ins on rptv). Other inputs needed, vcr on rptv (rear) input vid. 3, audio ins for dual cassett deck,cd, and phono. I'd also like digital audio inputs for htpc and dvd. A similar setup like the sony's DRLC would be great. Please recommend receivers that meet the above specs. Also all bells and whistle audio short of THX cert. would be great. 6.1 or 7.1 and sufficent rms to place in a 17' x 23' room. thanks!
