Yet another request for receiver advice. I want to get a mid to low price HT receiver from 300-600 range. I originally liked the Onkyo 700, but based on this forum I have heard that the power is very overstated, so I started looking for other options. I am actually using this 70% Ht and 30% music. Other things I am considering is future ability to use with 4 ohm speakers (yes even at this price range). I also prefer to have a "high current" amplifier. I currently have B&W ceiling speakers (don't laugh) for fr and rears (CCM65) with B&W LCR6 S2 for center and polk sub. This is what I have come up with: Onkyo SR-700. lowest i can get is $599. rated at 100 or 110 w per channel but I have heard about power overtstated with onkyo's. Onkyo brochure and I think web site has this listed as a "high current" receiver, but no actual amps are given so not sure about that. According to these forums, onkyo is pretty decent for HT applications. Can it drive 4 ohm speakers??? Brochure also gives rating for 2 ohms so I assume it can. HK 520- lowest I can find is down to $500+ship. Rated at 75 watts per channel, but supposely very conservative in its rating. Considered a true high power. I think it can drive 4 ohms speakers. Model 525 came out with DD EX but listed at about $900, which I'm not sure justify it's price difference. Any other differences? From searching the internet i have heard also that it's awesome for music but average to above average for HT. True?? Comments??? Remember, I use 70%HT:30%music. Do I need DD EX? Yamaha 5560 (about $350-400) and v1300 (about $530 - $600 street price). Have been hearing a lot about Yamaha for HT applications. 5560 rated at 75 watts per channel and V1300 rated at around 100-110 watts, I think. Yamaha advertise not only 4 ohms capable but ability to mix and match between 4 and 8 ohm speakers. Is that a big deal? Can HK mix and match different ohm speakers as well? Are these considered high current receivers? Yamaha suppose to be great for HT and above average for music. has DD EX I believe. Also been hearing about NAD T752 but its price of about $800 is on the high side for me, esp if it has QC issues, which to me is unaccaptabe for that price range. Thanks ahead of time.
