If you want to buy a receiver go here.
Ah, I missed that you had one with a problem. I thought you were unhappy with a working one. My bad.
In my case, my AVR247 is 5 years old and still working just fine, with only an occasional HDMI hiccup now and then to remind me of what a piss-poor interface HDMI really is.
With HK, these newest models are designed in China, which was not the case until these units. And it shows in the specs. HK today isn't HK of yesterday by far.
They are slanted toward Denon, but cover every brand and model in minute detail. I also have the Denon 4311. It has the best room correction software in any reasonable price range. Also has 1000 watt power supply that drives 4 ohm speakers fine. To get the best price on new product you have to call the vendor. Authorized dealers can't advertize the best price. Call Electronics Expo first. So what is your real budget $$$ wise?
