Just like the title says, if anyone is selling a a tx-nr717 or an AVR with at least 125w 20 Hz to 20kHz per channel, 3d capable and wifi capable please let me know. Budget of no more than $400.00.

125wpc??? Really? There is only one AVR that comes close to that... http://www.anthemav....eceiver/mrx-700 Nevermind on that one. It cost 5 times your budget...and it still only pulls 5.1 amp off the wall.

? the onkyo 717, 818, 809 and thats just off of the top of my head, and that is just 1 company. I may look into the 110/ch receivers as well seeing that i am running rf-82's, rb-61's, rs-42's and an rc-52 center. 125/ch may be a little overkill.

Lord thats a sexy receiver, I am still learning alot about home audio and hadnt even thought about companies outside of onkyo, denon and marantz.

Am I looking correctly at the power ouput for these Onkyo receivers? rated at 125/ch 20Hz to 20 kHz 8 ohms, is that a constant 125? or is this peak power output?

That is two channels driven. Not 5 or 7. To get an accurate idea, find what it "chews off the wall"...subtract about 50-70...divide that by 5 or 7. Most AVR end up around 35/60wpc...all channels driven.

Would I then be better served running a dedicated receiver alongside some sort of auxillary amplification to run the remainder of my theatre? I have noticed that it seems many people run a similar setup with a dedicated central receiver and then a secondary power source to run another section of speakers. I was thinking like the onkyo tx-nr717 and later down the road something like this? http://shop.emotiva....products/upa700 ...which had been recommended already by either you or someone else on the forums here

How much power you need is a function of speaker efficiency and room acoustics. Meaning, if you buy low efficiency speakers(87db and lower) and have a "dead room"... You need tons of power. Also, if you buy high efficiency(93db or higher) and have a "live room"... You can make due on 5 watts per channel. Buy your speakers...then you buy enough power for the volume you want.

That makes sense, everything I'm running is 93db and up so I will likely go with the 717 and see where I stand with room correction. now that I think of it, we have vaulted ceilings and a pretty open living room, this probably doesn't help since the room cannot be "filled" with sound.

Utilize height. That would be the DPL IIz and Audyssey DSX.

sweet the 717 has all ill need then, I may try seeing if I can get my rb-61's off the stand and a little higher or better positioned in my room.

717 on order, I cannot wait to experience the difference. Ive only owned an old crappy JVC first, then the onkyo ht-r550 and now this tx-nr717, Im hoping it is a huge difference to what im used to.
