I just got an influx of $800 dollars and I am going to use it to upgrade my receiver (finally!). Right now, I am considering the Denon 3801, Onkyo 787, and the Integra 7.1. As of now, the receiver will be pared with a pretty low end set of Sony speakers (two front full towers, center speaker, and two small rears, coupled with the SA-WM40 subwoofer). I intend to purchase new speakers (looking at Atlantic Technology, probably System 270THX, that is absolutely as high as I can go) within the next six to eight months, though. Which of these recievers is the best for the money and also, when are the new models coming out? Would it better to save the money, wait for the new models, and buy the receiver and speakers together? Thanks for the help.
