    HI,

    I am new to Home theater. I want to set up a system that will be used almost exclusively for HT.

    I am either getting the Energy Connoisser series or Energy e:XL and need some suggestions for a receiver.

    I like the Outlaw 1050, but really want PL-II for videos and TV.

    I am torn between the Onkyo 600, denon 2802 and HK 520.

    The 520 does not have DD-EX. Should this be a major concern because I liked the way it sounded?

    I didn't like the denon or onkyo sound as much, but I listened to them at Circuit City with poor speakers. I listened to the HK with energy speakers.

    Any opinions?

    With the AVR520, you're probably going to be using Logic7 for TV and Videos instead of PL-II.

    I was looking at the same receivers you are, but decided upon the Yamaha RX-V1200. It's available at Tweeter, if you want to give it a listen there.

    As with the Onkyo 595, the initial eprice of the 600 is about $400. It'll likely be available for just under $400 in a month or two. This is competitive with the Denon 1802. The 2802 competes with the Onkyo 696/700.
