Hello, I'm looking to replace my old Sony Dolby Pro-Logic receiver. It has served me well over the last 6-7 years but now I need something to work well with my Toshiba SD-1600 DVD player. Right now a local chain of stores have the Sony STR-DE975 (previous model year I believe) on sale for $429 Canadian, normally $599. I have been reading through some of the posts and it seems like Sony isn't too well liked except for the high end stuff in which I cannot afford. I'm looking to spend in between $300-700 CDN. I'm looking at the following kinds of receivers and would like opinions on them. Sony STR-DE975 as mentioned above. Can be had for $429 or cheaper if a demo unit. Onkyo TX-SR600 $499 or $599 (Can't remember which) CDN or so. Pioneer VSXD811S for about $500 CDN. Yamaha RX-V430 or RX-V530. 530 maybe out of my price range though. Thanks for any input!
