    Question HK AVR125 vs ONKYO TXSR600

    I was able to get a good deal on both a HK AVR 125 and an Onkyo TXSR600 for about the same price. Now heres the the problem which one to keep. While as of now I really dont have a great pair of tower speakers to test the the recievers to their full potential. Right now I only have a really old nice pair of pioneer bookshelfs, but I do plan on getting a full surround system when I graduate and get the means to afford it all. So looking toward the future what should I keep.
    HK AVR125
    45 watts/chx5chanels rms
    @< .07THDnto 8 ohms
    6 dig. inputs 3 of each
    2 dig. outputs 1 of each

    Onkyo TXSR600
    80 watts/chx6channels rms
    @.08THD into 8 ohms
    3 dig. inputs 2 opt/1dig coax
    1 fiber opt output
    component switching

    Most other features are the same.

    The extra channel in the onkyo is not a major factor. My roommate has 5.1 setup and I love it.

    What reciever should I keep, remembering that I plan to have a full system in the future.

    My humble unbiased mine-all-mine opinion is this:
    If you listen to 2-channel stereo (music) more than 5.1 home theater, keep the H/K...otherwise keep the Onkyo if HT is likely to be the top priority. This despite the added digital inputs on the H/K.

    Both are good receivers, and the differences between the two are minimal. A 45 watt H/K is plenty of power.

    I'm a HK man, so I would say keep the HK. I say this because I own a HK receiver and love it. Do not pay attention to the watts thing to much because 45wpc for HK is plenty for most occasions.

    I would recommend that you listen to both of them with your own CD/DVD and then make up your mind. Both are good products. Like my different colors? :=)
