I'm looking to replace my HTIB with something a little better. What would be a good receiver to start out with? I'm also getting a blu-ray player and will have a cable box and maybe even a old VCR to hook up to it.

What is your budget for the receiver. ?

As always we're going to need some kind of budget. As we've already mentioned in some of your other threads, simple refurbished 5.1 receivers start at $119 +sh and end around $6000-$7000 for those with way too much disposable income. Something like a refurbished Onkyo 509, Denon 1612 or a Yamaha 473/Pioneer 822 on sale somewhere might be all you really need.

 

Also, up-converting receivers, like Onkyo 608/609/616, Pioneer 1022, Yamaha 673 and Denon 1913 will wind up costing you a $100-$200 more then a basic receiver. So unless you watch a lot of old vhs tapes I'd recommend hooking the vcr straight to the display for video. The money can be better spent elsewhere.


"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.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.
