After 3 years my harman Kardon 7550 HD has a failing hdmi board :( I have been happy with it up until now, but it has become very glitchy and I'm not too sure how long its going to last. And the glitches are becoming more frequent. My budget is a little tight after buying 2 svs ultra's and this couldn't have come at a worse time. My budget is about a thousand, and I would like 7.2 and feature packed. Must have pre-outs to run my sunfire amp as well. This also leaves me wondering if I should go away from AVR's because I won't be using the amplifier section? I have only owned Harman kardon,so looking to try something new. I want something to pair well with my lsi's and sunfire. Have had my eye on pioneer elite sc65 and onkyo tx-nr828, also have been looking into integra's. Any suggestions is always appreciated!
