Hello readers, I've recently had my receiver's center channel go poop on me and I'm on the lookout for another one as listening to everything in 2.1 is starting to cripple me (kidding). It's been a long time since I've gone shopping for a receiver and I'm really overwhelmed with all the new options and features. So I'm looking for a little guidance to narrow the playing field down a lot and to get me caught up on some things. What I'm looking for. ~$400-$500 range ~70+ watts. Bonus stuff, but not required. ~Auto EQ ~WiFi would be great, but I'm not sure if its feasible. ~HDMI upscaling if possible. ~anything past 5.1 is fine but I doubt I'll be upgrading anytime in the near future. My current setup. Plasma --- Panasonic TH-42PX60U Satellite --- VIP211 DVD Player --- JVC XV-FA95 Receiver --- YAMAHA - RX V596 Center ch. --- Paradigm CC-370 Mains --- Paradigm Monitor 7's Surrounds --- Paradigm Monitor 3's Sub --- SVS PC-Ultra Normal use is for movie's, both DVD as well as Satellite. I also frequently listen to streaming audio from the Internet and Sirius channels from my Satellite provider. I also have a few audio dvd's. So good clean power for 2.1 as well as 5.1 is a major requirement. I'd appreciate any and all input or suggestions to point me in the right direction. If I missed anything please let me know. ~Cheers~ **** EDIT **** I wanted to thank everyone for their input, I finaly decided on the Onkyo TX-SR703 that i picked up for $539 (free shipping) from J&R.
