I have a 61" sammy DLP, with comcast HD, LG hddvd/bluray player, and a wii.


Currently usinig a JVC 401s but it has intermittent hdmi video dropouts.


Are there good options out there with 3 hdmi inputs that are under $400?

The HK 254 has 3 inputs as well and can be had for under $250 from Harman Audio on ebay - its a refurbished unit.


The Onkyo 606 is still available refurbished and has 4 HDMI inputs. Take a look at a few of the Marantz while you are on Accessories4Less. The refurbished SR6001 for that price is killer!

wow, thanks for the amazingly fast responses guys! The rc160 looks just perfect for what I'm looking for with inputs to spare... Went to Amazon - no sales tax and next day shipping for $3.99 - can't wait to hook it up!

Awesome! I just posted my review here. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

The OP has made his choice, but for the benefit of other readers:


The main "Under $400" receiver thread is here:

Prospective HK 254 purchasers should first look at it's offical thread here:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1043407


A competitive problem with the Onkyo RC160 and the 607 is that they both use Audyssey 2EQ, a minimal version of Audyssey that does not EQ the sub channel at all -- that's the most important channel to EQ in most rooms.

All of Denon's '09 lineup including the AVR-590 use Audyssey MultEQ at a minimum. The bottom line is that unless you are installing the receiver in a very well bass treated room (unlikely in this price class) or are not using a sub at all, the Denon's are going to sound better.

This one gets my vote!

Ditto! In fact, I own one and am very happy with it. So far it is pushing HDMI 1080P 24hz thru 26 ft to my Epson 1080UB just fine. I have a 45 ft cable coming this week (since the 26 footer is too short), and hopefully it will pass 1080P 24 hz and 60hz thru that as well. I'll report back in the "official" thread.
