I've had it for years, but really need more HDMI inputs. I'd also like to keep at least one component in. I don't care about 3D anything.

 

I just started my search and found the HK 1565, but not sure how it compares to the 2807. My budget is $400 or less, $300 being my preferred price point.

 

My current speaker setup is two massive Audio Labs for LR. Center, surrounds and sub are all Engery speakers bought when I initially got into home theater about 12? years ago. Let's put it this way, I remember posting a lot on here when I started getting into HT, but none of my posts show up in search. :o

 

Any suggestions, or comments on the 1565?

 

Thanks!

If you want that component video handed off to the HDMI (HDMI upconversion) I don't think the 1565 does that...make sure.

Besides the E400/X1000 should be around that price.

And why the massive step down?

Not meaning to step down...just started looking. *shrug* Haven't had to spec out receivers in years, which is why I'm asking about them here. :)

 

Is the E400/X1000 (looking into them now) a massive step down from what I have now as well?

The X3000 is close to the 2807. The older 2311/2312/2313 would also make a nice update.
