I know it's older technology but it's got tons of power for an AVR. I can pick one up, in supposedly like new condition (haven't seen it yet) for $200 with some surround speakers and a sub included.
I am using an 80WPC Yamaha RX-V373 to power a pair of Mariah Acoustics towers (don't know the model and there's not much info on the web for them). The speakers aren't getting the juice they need and I thought the 140wpc Denon would make a big difference. No HDMI so I will have to run my Roku and Bluray into the TV and then run a digital out to the receiver.
Anyone have experience with that model Denon? Any recurring problems with that generation Denons? I can get it Saturday but have to drive about 100 miles so it wouldn't be a problem to beg off if it's not worth the trip.
