I've been contemplating an HDMI switching rx for a long time. This has decent specs and is a terrific price. The video upconversion chip isn't the best but since I have a separate video processor - no problem!

This is a really great price for this new gen Onkyo TX-SR607 7.1 Channel Receiver! Check out these amazing specs:
7 Channels @ 90W, Supports 2 Subwoofers!
Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD
Faroudja DCDi Edge for 1080i Upconversion
192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converters for all channels
6 HDMI Inputs (including 1 HDMI port in the front)
Onkyo is known for their high quality receiver components. This new TX-SR607 gives you a lot of bang for the buck. Use coupon code: AFLAUD25 for 25% off!

Whats the difference between the 247 and the 254?

I have an HK AVR7200 (61 pounds worth of receiver :)) that I bought several years ago. http://www.audiorevi...76_2718crx.aspx
I love the receiver, even though there are some more modern features that are missing. I notice that, just like mine, the HK's mentioned above have pre-amp outputs, but no returns to the power amp. I find this to be a rather (totally) useless feature, but I may be missing something. I would like outputs that I could run to an external processor (I have a DBX 120XP (http://www.sixstardj...bx12subsyn.html) and a DBX 3bx Series Two (http://www.soundbrok...listingid=32819) that I would like to run my left/right mains through. With no return to the power amp stage this appears to not be possible. Why would they not provide a return to the amp stage to use such nice devices???? Do the Onkyos do the same thing to the buyer???

I believe you could use the tape monitor loop to insert those "sound coloring" devices.

Actually, I had thought of that but haven't tried it yet. One of these days.

That is exactly how I have an external EQ hooked up to one of my Onkyo's
