Ok, this will sound weird but I don't care. First of all, I've owned Onkyo receivers in the past and I love them. I'm currently selling my TX-DS676 and the only reason I'm selling it is because I wanted to upgrade to component switching. So I bought an Onkyo TX-SR602 at Circuit City and have been pretty impressed with it. I don't know about the whole Neo and Dolby Pro Logic II, etc. but the DTS-ES and DD-EX is a nice touch and I love the component switching. But (yep, there's a but) I came across a TX-DS787 which is a few years older but seems to still have all of the features I'm looking for. Yeah, it has one less set of component inputs (2 instead of three), but it's THX certified and the wattage per channel is higher. This is what I'm asking: Which would be a better receiver? Would the 602, since it's brand new, be a better model or would a model like the 787 be a better buy? Supply any reason if you must, but I need some expert advice here! Thank you in advance for your help... P.S. - The prices are nearly identical for these two models, so price isn't a factor.
