Looking at a few receivers locally and here is what I am in between at the moment, would appreciate a recommendation. First a few things I would like: - I dont want a receiver that will colour or brighten sound, natural the way the music was recorded would be ideal. - Music and home theatre use will be 60/40in favour of Music (big into sound quality had a former IASCA SQ truck). - Want to make sure that I dont have to crank volume to hear voices in movies and then sounds effects are too loud (current old low end sony sucks for this). - Very good EQ to balance and correct sound within a room as needed easily. - Cool running. - Good power, around 100 rms per channel minimum, but I have heard that a good quality 50w per channel like marantz is better? not sure if thats just the salesman. - Best Value for the $ my budget was $500 but will pay more if it is a good deal. - 4ohm stability. Only because I have high end car audio speakers that I would like to build boxes for home. My subwoofer is two ID 10" 4ohm subs in custom box with 300watt bash plate amp so this would not require 4ohm stability correct? Considering custom boxing my former car csx64s 4ohm as well. I would also like to be able to use high end home audio speakers at 8 ohm in the future as money allows. Considering the above am I best to go with a $300 amp and a $300 receiver or a $600 receiver (give or take a few $). Here are some current options I found locally (toronto), tax included: - Denon 2112 $510 - Denon 2113 $710 - Denon 3312 $790 - Marantz NR1603 $650 - Onkyo NR616 $675 - Pioneer VSX 1122 $700 - Pioneer VSX 1127 $620 Thanks!
