Okay... after lots and lots of researching receivers, I've narrowed the field down to 2 models. My budget is $500 firm with no room to go over. Onkyo TX-SR605 vs. the Denon AVR-1708 Here's a link to a side by side comparison courtesy of Crutchfield.com Crutchfield.com - Compare The Onkyo is $399. The Denon is $499. If it matters what the rest of my HT setup is: 65" Mits DLP 1080p TV Klipsch Reference 5.1 speakers Toshiba HD-A3 HD-DVD player DirecTV HD-DVR I'm planning to run HDMI from the DVD player and the DirecTV box to the new receiver and run 1 HDMI cable to the TV from the receiver. I may be getting a Blu-Ray player this year as well... so I'd like to have a receiver with at least 3 HDMI inputs, but so far I haven't found such a receiver under $500. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
