    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!

    I have an HK AVR7200 (61 pounds worth of receiver :)) that I bought several years ago. http://www.audioreview.com/mfr/harman-kardon/a-v-receivers/avr7200/PRD_171676_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.com/dbx12subsyn.html) and a DBX 3bx Series Two (http://www.soundbroker.com/RECORDING_STUDIO/?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
