I'm looking to buy myself a new DD/DTS receiver. Primary use for it would be for watching DVD movies. What are some good ones I should look into?

I have taken a look at the Sherwood Newcastle R-963 and it does seem like it has many of the current bells/whitles of current receivers. Any comments/experiences out ther with Newcastle?

The Onkyo 595 might be worth looking at also.
