    one more thing.

    when you move up a receiver line you do get more features and connections but you also get better amplifier stages, power supply, higher quality parts, room correction, digital-analog-converters, analog-digital-converters, video processors, etc which makes a better experience.

    I have a Marantz SR6004 receiver, DVDO Edge video processor and Emotiva XPA-5 power amp. it's better to buy separates than to put all your eggs in one basket and buy a flagship receiver.

    also Monoprice $5 HDMI cables are just fine :p

    I just went flagship back in the day H/K AVR 347 so onboard DCDi by Faroudja, 55wx7 in H/K speak which is 95w a channel in yamaha speak. Looking at the AVR3600/3650 here soon...I wont buy a mid/low end receiver again just not worth it to me had this one for 5-6 years now moved 3 times and it has always been perfect for me.

    here is a good example why it's a good idea to go with separates.

    this is the power amp I mentioned. it weighs 70lbs! three times as much as my receiver
