Hi everyone, I used to be on this forum years ago but got away with other responsibilities and interests. Recently, my Integra AV receiver (DTR50.2) quit putting out sound from any input. Fortunately, I have insurance from DirectTV to cover audio/video or PC components that malfunction. They found that they were not able to repair my receiver because the part was not available any longer and have offered my choice of 3 receivers to replace my Integra. Not having been involved with my old hobby or getting magazines every month, etc, I have completely lost touch with what is the best way to go these days. I have a 5 speaker surround system and can go with any of the modern surround technologies. I mostly watch DirectTV broadcasts, usually either sports or news or movies. I also use a Blue Ray player and sometimes listen to AM or FM broadcasts. The 3 choices I've been given in receivers are 1) Yamaha RX-A1070BL 2) Onkyo TX-RZ720 3) Denon AVRX3400H. Does anyone have any opinions or questions in helping figure this one out. None of these seem up to the quality of the Integra I had but at this point I'm not complaining. I'm interested in user friendly both for setting up and for using the remote. I like things that last and of course performance. I'm also thinking that low or no distortion at any volume, low or high is important. What say ye? Thanks much!
