I am about to purchase either the Onkyo TX-SR806 or Sony ES STR-DA3400 receiver, unless someone can convince me there is a better valued receiver on the market for my needs. Appreciate feedback as to which might be better for me. Here are my requirements: - I'll be hooking up to an LCD television, Blu-Ray DVD player - I want multi-room, so I can connect to a separate amplifier to play music outside where I have existing speakers. - I want ability to play my iPod music. - Ease of set-up is preferrable - I plan to use my VCR for kids VHS library I have read about heat problems with the Onkyo unit. I'm concerned since I'll be putting receiver into an enclosed entertainment unit. Will a component fan alleviate the heat well enough and what about the ambient sound? Are there any other receivers that you would recommend in the same price range that I should consider?
