Ok, so I've come to the conclusion that my Pioneer Elite has officially bit the dust. (It pops every time I switch sources from the right front channel, all other channels work fine And there's no sound from that same channel at any time not matter what. Levels are ok in the menu, I've tried everything to no avail.)
I'm on a budget of around 600 bucks. I play video games and watch TV and movies about 80% of the time, and listen to music around 20%. I need at least 2 HDMI inputs, 3 would be more like it. I want a somewhat "warm" sounding piece of kit, as I found the Pioneer to be very bright (or neutral as some would claim) I liked the MCACC that Pioneer offered, but I felt it lacked in the mid/low end calibration as well as the fact that that it wasn't really putting out the power I expected. I was looking at the Denon 1911 for my needs, but am unsure of weather that would be a good choice or not. Are my options limited because of my budget, or are there others out there that I might want to consider?
