I am about to purchase a new HT system. I think I have decided on the SVS package with the towers for speakers, and the PB12 sub.


Now I need a recommendation for a receiver. I am leaning toward an Onkyo, but not sure which one I would need.


My needs would be for 80% Bluray/DVD/HDTV and 20% music. I really like the idea of THX but not sure if its needed. Also, I have no idea about decoding and all that other stuff that are popular features. My budget is approx $500.


I do not have a BD player yet, so maybe that should be a consideration on my selection? Thanks

That Pioneer is a decent AVR.

Also take a look at the Denon 790/1910 AVRs and the Onkyo SR707 if you don't mind refurbished.

These each have Audyssey MultEQ room correction.


THX certification is (IMO) over rated. Audyssey is not.

Most any $500 AVR will drive whatever speakers you might choose to buy - unless you are wanting electrostats. You might have a problem with those.

Chose an AVR based on the features you want - buy speakers that are 8ohm.
