Hi All, Back in the late 80's I was a pretty knowledgeable audiophile but it has been many years and the market has changed. I suppose my zeal has lessened to a small degree, but I would still like to make a smart purchase. I like cranking the music up every now and then (mostly rock but all kinds) but the primary requirement for the receiver is for home theater. We are big movie people. I have a mix match of hardware but I currently have: Current hardware Speakers - Cambridge Soundworks matched set of speakers - (Just before they went out of business) Fronts - Tower II Cambridge large Subwoofer Large Cambridge Center channel (of the two options they offered) 2 Cambridge Soundworks rear channel Sony Blue Ray (new 2013) Sony kf-50xbr800 (works great for it's age with a new lamp, but only allows DVI in). I am ready/dying to replace it when I move or when it breaks, but it is doing the job for the interim until I move and get a "perfect" wall hanging wiring setup) Comcast DVR Airplay iphone/iPad - new to this but I love the ease of it I am looking for a replacement receiver as my Denon 70watt receiver (Circa 1998 with MTS - a year before DTS came out) is failing and is turning off when pushed to any higher volume. I don't think I need multi zone unit. I was at Best Buy for another reason and cruised the Magnolia room and did some research - and the entire crew were in favor of the Pioneer Elite line for my needs, and I am also partial to Yamaha, but I want a good unit and don't care (Pioneer elite, Yamaha, Onkyo or Marantz) would all be fine. The manager said he thought the Amplifier should be more powerful to match my speakers (of course - he said I/they deserved it! lol) , but I think that was sales speak, and want your opinions). Any suggestions for receivers the $450-600 range (is that enough??)? The TV will be replaced at some point in the next year or so and I am leaning towards the Panasonic TCP55GT50 55" Ready to buy now Pioneer Elite VSX 42/60/53 seems like good units. They had a box open higher end SC-65 they were pushing on me for $1,164, but I just don't think I need it as it is multi zone. Can you help?
