I have a Sherbourne PT7030 and I am just not happy with it, it is has a bunch of small issues I do not like.

1) It doesn't always play my Ipod, the music skips
2) While watching TV it switches from 2 channel to dolby music
3) You need a SPL meter to properly set up the sound (PIA)
4) Video sometimes cuts outs

I am looking to replace it without going for my lungs. Here is my system
Polk RTIA9's (modified crossovers)
Polk FXIA6 rears
Polk CSIA6 center
SVS PB12 plus sub
Emotiva XPA 1 mono blocks (two one per front speaker)
Emotiva XPA 5 for the center and rears

I am looking for something with blue tooth, USB, auto correction and easy to use. A EQ would be nice, nothing that is over complicated. I appreciate feedback.

Not exactly sure what your budget is but this MARANTZ 7702mkII is extremely impressive in features and is over 40% off retail at this site - I bought the same one and its been nothing but amazing... You can get the 7701 for MUCH less but it only has AIRPLAY no BLUETOOTH .....

Not sure I'd go with Marantz. I had one of the earlier pre pros and from day 1 only had problems with it. Sure early on they provided a software update but a new problem would pop up . After the warranty ran out the hdmi input board just went into melt down.
They bring out new models like the change of the season's. To be honest I am avoiding Marantz for life.

Sorry but EVERY brand brings out new models EVERY year - so your argument there is a little weak... My Marantz - even refurbished - has performed flawlessly from day 1 and @ %40 off of retail price...

Google Marantz hdmi issue's and see how many pop up. It was a design flaw, remedied by , you guessed it bringing out a new model. That's what I mean by Marantz bringing out a new model every year or so. Secondly who brings out a $3000 Network streamer that can't do Aiff ? Yep Marantz. I stand by what I have said, I have heard their product's and a lot sound very good , they look great but found out the hard way about reliability. If the op wants to buy one go right ahead.

Well if we are going to talk about HDMI boards then lets not forget about the main culprit and include Onkyo in the discussion.:yikes:

We still need a budget for recommendations.

Ya dont even get me started on Onkyo - Best buy kicked their a$$ out the door for that very reason... I quit selling them and almost got kicked off this sight for complaining about it ....imagine that (bc HTS was sponsored by Onkyo)
