Hi this is my first post here and as you'll notice I'm far from expert on this HT stuff. I've been looking for a HT receiver, have seen Pioneer (812 ?), Onkyo (602), Marantz and Denon. Haven't taken a look at NAD yet. Which one seems to have a better quality (talking about equivalent models)? I like Denon and Onkyo but this opinion isn't scientifically backed up!:b My other question is, I have a pair of RT5 and a PSW450 subwoofer from Polk, which are hooked to the Yamaha stereo receiver and now are being substituted by a pair of Paradigm's Monitor 9. So these Polks could be front and subwoofer if I get a receiver, but I also liked the Hometheaters in a Box that both Onkyo and Denon sell. So what a receiver (which one) or the Hometheater in a box? Thanks for your advice.
