Depending on your budget ... here is some options:

Yamaha RX-V663 ... Onkyo 805 ... Onkyo 606 ... then you also have Pioneer, Denon, Marantz and others that might be out of your budget (BTW I don't know what it is...)

You already own a Yamaha, so you know their quality and Onkyo is the best bang for the buck according to people who bought them :yes:

This AVR's have the TrueHd and DTS HD decoders ... so, if you plan to get a BluRay in the future, you don't need to upgrade the AVR ... you can upgrade the speakers little by little :T

You will need to go with larger gauge speaker wire, minimum 16awg and I always recommend 14awg. dont get taken by the expensive wire Home depot speaker wire is just as good as Monster wire.

As David already said Onkyo, Marantz Yamaha HK and Denon all have good receivers. What is you budget?

My next upgrade will be the Center Channel, Rear Speakers or Sub. Once I do one of those, I will upgrade my Speaker wire to either 12 or 14 gauge speaker wire.
