Both of these units are similar in price and features and I honestly don't need anything more expensive. Is there a particular reason to choose one versus the other besides the number of inputs they can handle? My particular setup will be as follows:


Samsung DBT H260F (via component or HDMI)=> receiver =>TV via component

PS3=============(via component or HDMI)=> receiver

Wii===============via component=======> receiver

DVD player========= via component======> receiver



The TV is an older CRT with no HDMI so I'll be using the component output of the receiver with possible new HDMI TV at a later date. I'll run the audio from the receiver to a 5.1 speaker setup.


Do these a/v receivers convert HDMI input to component when setup this way?

Neither of these receivers will do any conversion from component video to HDMI. For your CRT TV, you'll need to connect everything with component video cables. BTW, neither of these receivers, or any others that I know of that are currently available, will convert HDMI to component video.
