Money came into view and I was able to finally upgrade from my Sony STR K750P HTIB receiver. At first, I had my heart set on a Marantz SR5007 based on a recommendation here at HTS. However, I needed to settle on something a little more in budget. Today I ordered the Onkyo TX-NR709 for $399 from Accessories4Less.com and couldn't be more excited. It seemed to have the biggest bang for my buck, while still allowing me the opportunity to expand my home theater in the future. I really wanted AirPlay, however, the Denons in the same price range didn't seem to have equal features as the 709. I figured I could always get an Apple TV for $100 in the future and have seamless audio and video. I really like that the 709 had Audyssey MultiEQ XT, as well as preamp outs for the future. I really wanted multichannel analog inputs for an SACD player I have, which I wasn't sure if the 709 has. But I could always get an Oppo down the line and have SACD via HDMI. I'll keep you all informed about the receiver when it comes in as I'm pretty sure I'll have some questions about setup, etc.
