I need a receiver to drive a set of Axiom M2TiSe speakers...the M2's in front & back (and rear center), a VP50 front center and the EP-125 sub. I'd like this receiver to be upgradeable, and my only criteria is that it must have 6.1 capability and have Dolby Pro Logic II. I've listened to a bunch, from the Denon 2802/3802, the Onkyo 797, the Yamaha RX-V1200, and the Marantz 5200/6200. I like the way they all sound, actually, and the prices in the same ballpark for the comparable models. What I'm wondering is if there's anything that some of you can recommend that sets one or more of these receivers apart from another aside from the price / sound issues. I really like the looks of the new Yamaha that's coming out (the RX-V730, I think) but don't know if I can wait that long. The Yamaha customer service rep said May or June. *sigh* Anyway, your comments and / or suggestions are most welcome!
