Pretty straightforward question. I'm moving up to DTS at long last. I've got a pretty limited budget for the purchase. For the record it will be powering an Energy Take 5 speaker system which takes up to 100w at 8 ohms. Video switching isn't much of an issue. As a minor functionary of Sony Pictures I get a pretty good employee discount on Sony products, particularly the STR-DE685 which is $300 at Best Buy, but I can get it for $205 and the STR-DE885 which is $350 at BB and $234.65 for me. I lean towards the latter since it seems to have better LFE control, essential with small speakers like mine. Also it comes in silver, which I like Also I checked out an very nice Onkyo at a local retail which was about $530, about the upper limit of what I can spend. Any thoughts? - Guy EDIT: looking at Bob McElfresh's chart it would seem that the Onkyo model in question was the TX-SR600.
