My idea of absolute best value is Onkyo. Consider the loaded TX-SR605 @ $430 or bigger brother TX-SR705 @ $650.

My idea of slightly more price for even more highly regarded is Denon. Consider the Denon AVR-1908CI @ $599 list or the AVR-888 @ $749 list.

Sure there are others. Just thought these two brands stand out.

These are up to date & powerful. Perhaps you don't really need quite this much receiver. So look at slightly less expensive. There are many that will do a good job for you for several years to come.

Onkyo TX-SR805 for $709.94, free shipping at Amazon.

It has numerous improvements upon all of those receivers listed for the same price, if not less.

Of those, I submit that the increase of current from 36 amps of the 705 to the 60 amps of the 805 is worth much, much, much more than the difference you will pay in cash.

You're welcome.
