Looking to get a receiver for around $500 street price. Requirements: Must be able to upconvert S-video to Component. Needs 3 component inputs with one component monitor out. 3 optical inputs would be nice but 2 with one or two coax inputs would be okay. Would also like multi room capability.
Speakers: Front L/R- Jmlab Sib, Center- JmLab SibXL, Rear L/R-Niles 650HD in ceiling, Subwoofer- Velodyne SPL1000.
I'm going to have a long run from the receiver to the TV, about 30 feet. So if some receiver in this price range does an exceptional job of handling the video I would have to lean towards it. I've looked at alot of receivers in this price range and just wanted some recommendations for those in the know.
Thanks in Advance.
