    Default searching for a $600 receiver

    My HK AVR630 recently developed a volume control issue (the volume will spike to the max on it's own a few minutes after turning it on). Rather than look into getting it repaired I'd like to buy new.

    I'm still leery of Onkyo due to how my old amp ran so freakin' hot in the mid 90's. I'm drawn to Denon (2112, 2312) having always heard positive things but never owning one, but am wondering if some of the more knowledgable folks here have better ideas that would meet my rather basic needs.

    I have few requirements in terms of features beyond sufficient hdmi, rca ins & outs for my vintage cassette deck if possible, and as much clean power as I can get for the money. Old fogeys like me are probably mostly interested in power and durability.

    I use Polk VM30 fronts, an old Paradigm center, 12" Infinity sub and inexpensive Infinity surrounds, all of which I intend to update except the VM30's.

    We split 50/50 between movies & music and watch on a 6 year old Panasonic 50" plasma.

    Any directions to help a helplessly behind the times 53 year old a/v ignoramus out of the maze of $400-$700 a/v receivers is sincerely appreciated.

    Take a look in the FS section. Couple of nice buys in there.

    Just went thru the process of selecting a new AVR myself. After trying just about everything in the $500 to $1000 dollar range I finally settled on the new Denon AVR-1913 for $579.99. Its a solid 7-channel unit with all of the current must haves, including Airplay, Audyssey's MultEQ, remote apps, Audyssey Dynamic EQ, and a great OSD with full setup wizard.
