I'm looking to upgrade my RTiA3s with RTiA7s or 9s and will be replacing my low-end Pioneer. The home theater will be in a 15x17 foot room, hardwood but with a large wool rug. The entertainment center is centered on one 17 foot wall with doors on either side of it. The wall opposite the HT is mostly open to the kitchen--so the room is fairly open.
What AVR will be a good fit with my set-up? Will be used for movies and music--Radiohead, Massive Attack, base-heavy, mid to low tempo electronica/soundscapes and occasionally rock.
Willing to spend $500-$800 or so.
Also will be using CSiA4 and F/Xi4.
