Not sure where to start. I'll try to just hit the high points and hopefully get things rolling. Current system: Onkyo 575x JBL N24's (2 front, 2 rear) JBL N-center Sony subwoofer Insignia DVD player Comcast cable box 36" tube tv. Future upgrade: New receiver (undecided) Samsung 46"/52" LCD (not 100% decided) JBL N24's (2 front, 2 rear) JBL N-center Sony subwoofer Wii (got it for xmas) Insignia DVD player (might get a blu ray depending on how much tv/receiver cost) Comcast HD box So, as you can see I need some opinions. Mainly on the receiver. I know I need hdmi switching but not sure if there's anything else that I have to have. Looking for a decent mid-level receiver around ~$500. Less is better though. I considered the Onkyo 606 but have read alot of negatives about it. Also considered a Denon or two (can't recall the model # offhand). Looked at the HK 254 as well. Basically I am overwhelemed with all the options/newer technologies out there. Suggestions???? I have not decided on a tv but I need to go look at them and then will probably have several questions. Speakers will not change out at this time. They are not top of the line but will have to do for the time being. BluRay would be nice but it's not a necessity now. Cliffs - Upgrading current system. Need opinions on a receiver somewhere around $500.
