Hello all, I'm new in these forums and decided to join based on my decision to begin my first ever home theater setup. I'm a college student with a passion for home theater and a tight budget. I'm going to start off with a humble stereo audio setup (I'm planning on purchasing two TSi 300's from Polk Audio) and need some help with the receiver.
I'm stuck between the Denon AVR1910 and the Sony STRDN1000. I would like a receiver such as these two that have the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD decoders because of my recent addiction to Blu Ray. But in addition, I want a receiver that has great video upconverting and scaling. Also, because I'm a college student, this will be an investment for me and I'm hoping it will last me a long time until I can upgrade in the future.
So what I'm asking is for some opinions. What do you all think is the better brand for receivers? Sony or Denon? Which one will I be happiest with? Which one will last me the longest? Should I pick a different brand or model altogether? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
