I am getting ready to move into my new house so I have demoed numerous receivers and would love some opinions. Here is the specifics. -Room is 17x20 with 19' ceiling -Equipment will be located in a separate closet away from the TV (already wired with 7 runs of RG6 and 1 run of Cat5e) -Have a two source whole house amplifier that covers 4 rooms -Sony DVD ES with the 400 disc -Speakers are as follows: Fronts VR3 Boston Acoustics Center VR10 BA Rears (3) In-wall BA 381s Sub PV 1000 BA -Features I want -enough power and good clean sound -component conversion (that does not degrade video quality) -Separate out for whole house amplifier (2 would be nice) -Auto setup is also a neat feature Receivers ranked 1. Yamaha 2400 (meets all the features though I am concerned that it is underpowered) 2. Denon 3803 (great value at 6thave) 3. HK AVR7200 (I have not seen/heard this one but have heard goods things about it) 4. Pioneer Elite 53 (no component up conversion)Sounds great!! 5. Marantz 7400 haven't checked it out yet but have seen bad reviews on the 7300 Also, would be nice if it came in silver not that I like silver but Sony has not done us any favors with the ES equipment all being silver. My goal is to stay under $1,500.
