Denon is my favorite brand for HT receivers. However, there are other very fine brands as well. Many of our members like Onkyo and Pioneer.

Accessories 4 Less offers factory refurbished receivers at significant discount:

Many of our members, including myself, have purchased from them and have been well pleased with the service. I purchased a refurb Denon AVR-3312 from them this summer - looked brand new and worked perfectly.

Audyssey setting speakers to large is fairly common. You should definately set the rears to well above 40 - 80 is fine. 80 for the front and center is fine as long as you have a separate subwoofer. If you can defeat the sub's internal crossover, do that. If you can't defeat it, move it to the highest frequency. You want the receiver to handle the crossover.

Interestingly enough, I had problems getting my HTPC player to work with my Denon AVR-3311CI receiver, but didn't have any issues with a Pioneer Elite VSX-33. That said, I do like the Denon better than the Pioneer. The MCACC seemed to EQ things a little too bright.
