Onkyo 805 Replacement

So, my Onkyo 805 is finally on it's last limb. I found it through the help of you guys about 6 years ago and it's help up pretty well for a refurbished unit. Something happened and when I went to plug it in, the two screws holding the power supply snapped the plastic holding it to the metal cover. So now, it's just plugged in but is technically loose from the metal case. Probably not the safest thing, so it's time to replace.

I have had really good luck with my Onkyo but after reading here, are they still the better bet? I bought the 805 because everyone said to make sure you have the preamps. Well, after all these years, they went unused. I had big dreams but after hearing it without it, I was more than happy.

I'm running to Polk RTi8s, a csi5 and two FX5s(I think that's what they are called).

I've been really happy with my set up. I hate losing my 805 but I don't want to buy anything that's not going to give me at least as good of sound as the 805.

I'm far from an audiophile. It's only used for TV and movies. Just looking for something that I can make sure gives me as good of sound as the 805 did.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Onkyo is ok, they just finally Owned up to bad hdmi boards due to theyre avr's getting Way to Hot!;) Yamaha, Denon, and Marantz are also good brands to consider!

I had a Onkyo 806 that just died, you could fry a egg on that thing! I replaced it with a Denon x4100w around a month ago...:)
