    Default Receivers with Pre-Outs

    I recently found out that my receiver, Onkyo TX-SR603X doesn't have pre-outs.

    I am looking for a receiver in the same range (<$500) with pre-outs. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!!

    My receiver .... Yamaha RX-V657 is great. Excellent sound quality, features and reliability. IMHO Superior to Onkyo and Pioneer. Same quality as Denon (Obviously, in the same price range) Try to listen it.

    Ohh I forgot. In this A/V you've got pre-outs, video up conversion, YPAO and other cool features.

    I wouldn't buy a Yamaha receiver, period.

    There's lots out there to choose from, have a look around.

    what Russ said.
    For under $500, start with the Marantz sr-4600 and Harman Kardon avr-240. Both have much better amp quality than a sub $500 Yammie, Onkyo, Pioneer, Sony and Denon.

    or... go used.

    goto circuit city.com and get the TX-SR703x. I found it on sale for about $250 off. If you check back every week, they will randomly mark down the price.

    the Harman Kardon 240 can be had at circuit city for 349.99 as of today....
    this is an unbelievable deal as you'll find it at most retailers for around 549.99 to 600.00
    high current w/ pre-outs and all the fixin's:D

    The Harmon Kardon at around $350 seems a great deal! I checked it out at Amazon also for that price.

    The TX-SR703x would go well with my Onkyo DVD player but it is a little on the high end at around $800, but its definitely worth considering.

    Does the HK and Onkyo 703 both have pre-outs?

    How does the 703 compare to the HK in quality?

    the HK does have pre-outs and it should be noted that the 349.00 pricepoints is for a new unit, not a refurb....

    I did notice that - but is it better than the Onkyo 703?

    IMO yes...
    in my comparisons, the HK's produce a more laid-back sound than the Onkyo's (which tend to sound a little more aggressive to my ears); chances are, if you have chosen Polk, you favor a warmer presentation than say, Infinity's line of speaks can provide, so it would seem the Harman Kardon and Polk make good bedfellows
    just my 2 cents (i know quite a few on this forum cherish their Oinkers):)

    Thanks for the help - this certainly helps since the HK is a LOT cheaper than the Onkyo TX-SR703

    One thing for sure - the Onkyo customer service is the worst!!!

    Onkyo...never heard one of them....

    Here in Argentina, Yamaha and Denon are the strong hi-end brands. Harman Kardon and Marantz are more hard to find but...not impossible. ;)

    In customer services...the winner is Yamaha. (by far)

    You may even be able to find last year models discounted (HK) that's how I scored my HK335 for 590$cad. Glad I did, as mentioned a very nice match with my Polks.
