I am looking for a replacement AV Receiver for my Onkyo TX-SR806 which is in an open living room in my townhouse. The entire setup occupies a 9-foot wide by 12-foot deep area. See the rest of my set up below. I am currently running a 5.1 set up, with the way my ceiling is constructed, and the room is laid out, I don't know that I could pull off the ceiling speakers for 5.1.2.

I really like the looks of the Anthem MRX 540 receiver and I hear amazing things about their room calibration. I have always sworn by the Audyessy Room Calibration. Other receivers I am considering are the Denon & Denon AVR-X3700H Marantz SR6015. Any input would be appreciated.

Any of those would be excellent. The Anthem is on a higher level, with the price to match, though the newest ARC Genesis needs some tweaking before it's really done. That should happen and be updated, though.

LOVE that 806 and the UDP-203!

Did you ever get any resolution to this question? Also, why were you looking to replace the Onkyo -- was it just so that you could get into height channels (which I thought you said there was no room for in your setup)? The reason I ask is because that Onk 806 is a BEAST of an amp, so unless you were looking to move to something that decodes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, I wouldn't be so quick to replace that thing (I am still running a 605 myself).
