    Hi, are there any receivers that offer the above two features and are priced under $500? If so, what do people recommend?

    thanks,

    If there are none (or none worth speaking of), it's ok for someone to say that [​IMG]

    The new Sherwoods coming in April/May will offer both and probably start around $250. I think the new low to mid range Yamaha's and Onkyo's that will be coming out will have both as well.

    Yeah I think you gotta wait until the spring for that. You can get the Denon 2802 for like $575ish, but I'd just wait a couple months for the Onkyo 600.

    I was looking at the 2802 over the Onkyo 600, does the 600 have significant advantages to the Denon.

    also ... If it matters to you, Denon is not known for having the best remotes, but Onkyo's remotes seem to be pretty good. (I have the 595; the remote can control 8 devices, and it's also a learning remote, but only the device keys are backlit.)

    The 2802 is a great receiver IMO. I traded in my Parasound separates for this receiver(sob story deleted) recently and was amazed at how subtle the differences are between them. I do miss the muscle of the 2205 amp for 2-channel music listening so I'm considering adding an external amp for that but otherwise I get lots of enjoyment out of this underrated IMO receiver.
