I like the looks of this AVR a lot. Great feature set for a reasonable MSRP. But I think I can save a few dollars and get the 760.

Yikes! Fortunately my Denon can connect to Ethernet. That wifi limit would have tripped me up too.
I suspect Sam’s does as well. I definitely prefer wired, but it’s not always possible. I suspect it could be wired.

Sam?

I know the 1700 supports Ethernet. More about I’ve got my living room wired. Sam probably doesn’t have his basement ethenet wired.
