Hey everyone... I did a few searches here,and read some reviews elsewhere on the net,so now I'd like to get some opinions here. Like the topic states,I currently own a Kenwood 1090VR receiver. I bought this about 3 & 1/2 years ago,and I do love it. But there are some things now available that I'd like to try,mainly DPL II and DTS,which my receiver doesn't have. I remember talking to the salesperson who sold me this ... Me- "So what do you think about DTS? I am interested in that." SP - " Well,DTS is only available on one DVD at the moment ,and DD is sooo much better. DTS won't last long,so don't worry about it. " Oh well...I did get the receiver cheap Anyways - not having DTS & DPL II (which I want for the new gaming systems) are the cons,and the reason I am thinking of upgrading. (also no component inputs/outputs) But I'm in no big rush - so unless I can get something comparable at a good price (i.e. $500 or less), I can wait The Pros of my receiver are: DD coax & digital outputs (which I use my DVD player & my PS2 currently) Lots of S/video inputs (which I use my various gaming systems for) Video switching (again for said gaming) So,can I get a comparable AV receiver which has what I need/or what I want? Or should I hold off & save a while? (also hearing from anyone who has actually used what I own would be really cool) Thanks for taking the time to read my post! ------------------ "Never give up!!! .......... Never surrender!!!!!!!!!."
