Mid-range AV receivers

Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K, Onkyo TX-SR607, and Denon AVR-1910.
Does anyone have experience with these? I am looking to compare/contrast the audio quality for music & movies, and the video scaling capabilities of these three receivers.

made about the best value status of Onkyo. The reviews are here on C/NET. Read them carefully. Onkyo has set a new high standard for up to date features at great value. However, you will read they lack a little in video processing. C/NET then reviews Denon as not discounted as much, but even better performance & with higher reliability.

Sorry, I don't keep up with Pioneer but I would expect that your cited model is fairly comparable. They all will provide decent performance. For the bit more money, I'd lean towards Denon. Especially look for any of these three models for model year end closeout prices. I recent snatched a superceded Denon up for way less than half.

I agree, the Denon is very nice. Great sound quality, reliability, features, and build quality! I don't have experience with the Onkyo, but the Pioneer is good. The Pioneer doesn't sound as smooth as the Denon. Also the Denon has Audyssey which is an excellent eq system with other great features.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
