    LG 42" Smart LED (LA8600).
    Sony Blu-ray Home theater 5.1 E4100 (1000w),
    AV Receiver should be .................. ?
    Problem is i need more power of sound, Clarity. Blu-ray Movie experience is perfect but most of the time, some download movie (HD - *.mkv, *.mp4, 720p, 1080p, Well properties) doesn't entertained because system doesn't give the proper vocal sound(very poor and low sound). There need to have more power to the speaker.
    Which AV Receiver would be appropriate, Sony STR-860 or Denon x-1000 or Anything else?
    The price should be in mid-range.
    Answer your valuable opinions.....

    You download your movies, there is part of your problem, low bitrate for audio from these downloads reduces the sound quality, i remember years ago buying the UK dvd of Armageddon and comparing it against the non-anamorphic Criterion dvd release, the UK was 378kbp/s ( i think ) and the USA Criterion was 448kbp/s, the mix was identical but i could clearly hear better sound on the Criterion release, everything sounded a little bit tighter and more refined, from the bass to the music score.
