I am getting the Rti A7's for my front two speakers with the intention of doing the same for the rear and updating to the A6 center. I want a reciever that will powert hem decently until I can upgrade to an external amplifier (aka I do not want my wife to kill me for spending another $3K on my stereo system at once when my current one is more than sufficient for her).
I was considering the Denon 3311 or the Onkyo 808 or 1008. I like the features of the Panasonic 1120 and 1020, but have read that they do not run close to their power ratings. What do you think of these, or do you have any other recomendations. I guess I want the most bang for the buck, 1.4a, great sound quality, great video picture, HD radio, and obviously pre amp outputs.
Can I get some feedback from people that have these receivers and hopefully even better people with the receivers as well as the Rti a7's. I know a lot of it comes down to personal preference, but because I am going to power them from the receiver in the interim, I would like something with clear, consistend higher power to at least justify to my wife why I am spending so much freaking money on my new addiction.
