I need to replace a 12 year old receiver with a new one.


Looking to spend about $800 to $1K online.


Most important features:


1. Excellent stereo sound

2. Video processing to clean up Comcast standard def cable

3. Runs cool (will be stored in a cabinet)

4. Multi-zone use to allow watching TV in one room and listening to music in another


All responses appreciated!

Denon 3311ci, 4310ci

Onkyo TX - NR808 or 1008 - maybe 1007 and even 3007

^ Dead on.


The 3311 or 1008 has 1.4 HDMI so they're a bit more future-proof.


The Denon's have a better video-chip/processing, although both are great (the 1007/1008 a little less-great than the 3007/8).


Any will offer plenty of amplification for all but the largest venues...especially in stereo.


The onkyo has the "better" DAC's...whether you can tell the difference is up for debate.


Be warned: don't expect ANY video processor to work miracles with standard-def programming on an HDTV. The very best will afford marginal benefits.


If it were me, I'd go 3311, but all are rock-solid for the price.


GL,


James

also the Anthem has superior room correction to any receiver in its price range.

Onkyo's customer support is a little on the weak side
