    The Adventage series is well regarded. Take a look at the Pioneer SC series as well. Good luck!

    It's not bi-amping for starters.

    Such an open question so much based on what you like or want to spend.
    For me it would be.

    Pioneer SC series, Anthem MRX series, NAD.

    Unless you have a dedicated amp or are planning on one I would stay away from most Onkyo's and Denons. Their WPC is pretty much a lie unless the spec states X watts all channels driven. Otherwise your only getting a sense of what it can do with just 2 speakers connected, and the more speakers you add, the lower that number actually gets. Not sure if Yamaha's or Marantz are as bad. I cant recommend anything from HK for HT as their auto calibration is just HORRIBLE.

    Any of the models from the Pioneer Elite SC line, NAD or Anthem will be pretty decent sounding and they dont lie as much about their specs.

    The Yamaha RXV series of avr are pretty much the same as what EnderShadow was talking about.Very nice specs at 1st blush but it's not xxxwpc driven to all speakers .My rxv-665@90wpc was a disappointment and I clipped the thing. I was lucky it had pre/outs and added an external amp to make it work like it should. If your only interest is movies then I would say ok/maybe but if your into music then absolutely no.From what I hear the Pioneer SC series is the way to go.

    Then get an SC series and call it a day. If you want to save some coin, go to Costco and pick up a 1222K (rebadged SC61) for $469 and spend the rest on other upgrades....

    Off the top of your head, are there any real drawbacks to the 1222K that someone would be missing out on if they went that route instead of a newer SC series? (Assuming 7.2 and 120wpc are ok with said person)

    Missing 12v triggers and a shorter warranty but the extended Costco warranty covers that...
