Thanks everyone for your advice thus far, it has been great. I have narrowed my receiver search down to 2 different models, currently available as refurbs for the same money. Both have several "pros", but I'm more concerned with the "cons" at this point. I have seen that the Denon's power rating may be overstated and I have read about several H/K quality issues. For me, I'd rather have a less powerful, dependable component than one I need to worry about every time I turn it on and might have to return. Should I be that worried about the H/K? Any further help would be appreciated.
