I'm trying to decide between an onkyo TX-SR702 and a TX-NR801(most likely more to come...uh. this is going to take forever). Anyways, with all these inputs on the back of these things who needs a componet switcher, Right? One of the most annoying thing about my current receiver(Onkyo Ht-R500) is that if you route all your connections through it you have to have it on to use them. I don't want to watch dvds in surround sound all the time. I thought that is why they made monitor outs. Anyways is it like that with ALL receivers.
