I have an upper end Onkyo and have been having some trouble with it. I get occasional ear shattering chirps through my speakers and recently my HDMI output stopped working so I'm looking for a new one. I'm kinda looking to get away from Onkyo since I'm having problems and haven't been completely happy since getting it about 6 or 7 years ago. I've owned about 3 or 4 Onkyo's in a row. Now to my needs...budget is around a thousand bucks. I have a 3D Sony TV,Playstation 3,Directv receiver and an Apple TV. I have a 7.1 speaker setup (Mirage). That's the basics...if you need to know anything else please ask. Thanks for any help.
