Ok, now that I have HD, DVD, etc etc...my old receiver just doesn't cut it anymore (no component inputs). I have one of the old Kenwood HTB-530(or 503 I don't remember) I think it is (many many years old). It has served me well though. Anyway, upon looking at what to do I find the decision to be quite a task. Initially, I was thinking HK 7200 on sale, however, after reading and reading and reading there are just so many decisions. I am wondering if a better option would be to upgrade to a newer HTIB. My room is setup for 5.1 (2 ceiling mounted rear speakers) and I see 7.1 is the thing now, not sure how well that would work in my room. Mainly, I want to be able to get all my devices input into the receiver and then output to my projector (which has all your standard inputs). Obviously, one cable going to the projector would be nice, which would mean upconversion to component for other inputs. However, I do have a limited budget. I would like to stay around $500 with a variance of +250 if absolutely needed. There are quite a few receiver options it seems. In addition, I am not sure if my current speakers will work OK after the upgrade or not. Any input from some of the well experienced here would be appreciated. Getting real tired of swapping digital audio cables and component cables every time I want to switch from watching DVD to HD/Cable.
