View Full Version : Looking for advice on three HT Receivers

02-06-2008, 11:15 AM
In my search, I have narrowed my choices to these three:

Sony STR-DG1100
Onkyo TX-SR705
Denon AVR-888

I am looking for On Screen Display that will work with HDMI. If possible, I want all signals to be upconverted to HDMI as well. These seem to be priced the same (Denon is less). I am looking for some input as to what the general census would be as to which is the best of the three. In the mean time, I am going to try and find them locally so that I can give a listen.

thanks in advance for any help

Personally if it was me. The Denon doesn't have all the features that the Onkyo has and I wouldn't buy a Sony if it wasn't an ES series, so that leaves the 705. Which I bought 2 weeks ago and it's great. It's got more features than I can use at the moment, but it's set for the future. The Audessey speaker setup feature is amazing. I've never heard my system sound so balanced, for lack of a better word. Check around and listen to all three and see what you like.
