I have just purchased some new to me speakers and now am wanting to upgrade my receiver as well. I have researched mostly by specs so far and narrowed it down to three receivers. Speakers: Paradigm Monitor 5, CC350, ADP100 and a JBL PB10 Devices: Xbox component video, optical audio DVD Player component video, coax audio Cable Box DVI video(tv), optical audio Game Cube composite vid/audio currently Receiver Requirements: On Screen Display Subwoofer Crossover Control Receivers Denon AVR-1905 Pros: - 3 component video inputs - Price seems a little cheaper Cons: - 80W Pioneer VSX-1014 Pros: - 110W - THX Select, THX Surround EX - 2 coax connections - Auto setup with microphone - Available from best buy for a little more but with financing - Medium Price of the three Cons: - No zone 2 right? - 2 component video inputs Onkyo TX-SR602 Pros: - 4 Optical inputs - 2 Coax inputs - Auto Setup Cons: -Highest price of the three -85W Questions: 1. My current receiver is a Sony STR-DE685 100x5, Sonys wattage ratings are usually over estimated right? Which means I shouldnt really worry about the power ratings compaired to my current unit? 2. Should I consider the fact that the Denon and the Pioneer both do video conversion to component video while the Onkyo only does to S-Video since I really have any devices that could take advantage of this, other than less wires to the TV? Also when it says it supports video conversion does it just reroute the signal or does it actually upgrade signal quality? 3. Should the fact that the Pioneer has THX give it a little better score when compairing these units. Thanks for opinions and comments I am anxious to hear back I have heard a lot of good things about the Pioneer 1014 and the Onkyo 602, but not much about the Denon.
