Could use some recommendations on modern equipment based on what I have
Not doing much with receivers in the last 20 years or so, I hear that
Denon is considered one of the best for home theaters. About a year
ago I was led to the AVR-686. It seems to have everything I want, but
it is quite a bit less than many of the other Denon recievers. Many of
the Denon home theater receivers seem to jump to over $1,000 for
reasons I don't seem to see.
I want to have the 7.1 capability (although I will probably start with
setting it up as a 5.1). I have 2 DVD players (one that goes between
my Motorola DVR cable box and everything else) and a separate one that
I don't use much. I have a VCR and a CD. That's it. I use an old
Kenwood KRV-107R receiver with Bose 2 speaker/subwoofer combo now. The
reason I am looking at a new receiver is that I have a devil of a time
understanding the words on TV programs. Part of it is age, I know.
But it is also room acoustics and the sound content of many of the
programs (with built-in background noise and holographic effects) I am
thinking that the receiver does not handle the new "processed" sound
coming from the new shows very well. Older movies are easier to
understand the words.
