I was wondering if I could get some advice from everyone.Right now I have a Sony str-dg500 receiver that is on its way out and I am needing a new receiver. I am looking for something at least 7.1 and in the sub $300 range. Main thing I need is at least 4 Hdmi inputs. I would like internet ready but it is not a dealbreaker for me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

The receivers that are 7.1, like the Pioneer 921, Denon 1712, Onkyo 609 and Yamaha 571, seem to start at about $350-$400. If you're O.K. with a factory refurbished receiver (with a one year warranty) we often recommend Denon's and Onkyo's Ac4l.com. They currenty have the Denon 1611 (last years model) for $219.99 + sh. http://www.accessori...Receiver/1.html and the 1712 (this year) for $279.99 + sh http://www.accessori...Receiver/1.html and the Onkyo 360 for $279.99 + http://www.accessori...Receiver/1.html
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.
