    I was looking at buying either the Onkyo TX-SR600 or Kenwood VR-6070 reciever to replace the Kenwood KR-300HT home theater in-a-box I bought about four years ago. I was also thinking of buying the Onkyo SKS-HT500 speaker system to go with it. I know there is an issue with the bandwith on the component switching on the Kenwood but because of the number of devices that I have that are HD I am probably going to buy a separate HD switcher for that (so any good recomendations for that would be great also!).

    I have HDTV Cable, Panasonic CP72 progresive scan DVD player and the HD pack for the X-box currently sharing the 2 component inputs on my Sony KP-WV700 TV. In the near future (hopefully) I will be picking up the HD pack for the PS2 and a HD Tivo when they come out. That's a total of 5 HD components so I could use a 4 way switcher and run the 5th one to the other input on the TV.

    I have a budget of up to $1000 but the lower the better of course. Any opinions or recomendations are welcome and appreciated.

    I have the Onkyo txsr 600 and I am using the component switching for my dvhs and dvd and it works great for only offering 50mhz of bandwith I really cant tell the difference.

    The Kenwood 6070 only offers 10mhz of bandwith for component switching. From what I've heard it's not enough. I use the Kenwood 6070, but I don't use the receivers component switching so it's not an issue for me. Other then that the 6070 is an AMAZING receiver for the price...that is if you can still find one. Hope this helps.
