I've read through the FAQ thread but I still don't have a good understanding of some things... So I'm sorry for my newbness.


I'm looking for an AVR that:

Has at least 4 HDMI in

I'd love to have 6 or 7 but that seems too hard to find.

Has 1080p Passthrough

I don't even really know what this means but I'm guessing it simply passes the full 1080p signal from the device (360, PS3, etc.) through the AVR to the TV. Shouldn't all AVR's made within the last few years do this?

Upscaling to 1080p

I don't really know what this means either, but my current AVR only upscales to 1080i. 1080p should be standard. But then again why would you ever need/use this?

Doesn't have THX

My Panny Plasma TV doesn't support THX so why spend the extra $$$ for a feature I cant use.

Custom labels for inputs

I haven't owned a VCR for 10,000 years. So please let me type my own labels for the LED screen on the front of the AVR.


Optional: Would like to have ethernet for streaming music from my Mac Pro


Any suggestions?

Sony ES models have a lot of HDMI connections.



But so do the Onkyo models from 807 and up. Price range for this AVR would be helpful.

This has more to do with the amps and what they can handle as a load for speakers on the receiver than the picture aspect of it. Won't effect your display at all.

The Pioneer Elite SC-25 fits your requirements except the ???THX??? part.

Figure 1K. This includes streaming.

Drop steaming, go VSX-23txh and cut that in almost half.


Just so you are aware, the THX certification means that the audio section of the receiver meets certain requirements for accurate reproduction.

You can get an HDMI switch box that allows you to connect several HDMI components into an HDMI input ($30-50). This is a possible solution in the situation where the receiver does not have 4+ HDMI inputs.


My Panasonic G15 Plasma is THX certified for video. And this is different from the audio in my two THX receivers.


Most upconversion of non-1080p sources such as videotape may not give you anything better than watching the original videotape. The upconversion may not be needed in the receiver.


Most Blu-ray players do an excellent job of line doubling on regular DVDS.
