    HT Receiver Question

    Hi all. I'm looking for a new receiver that will primarily be used for HT. I'll be running the Polk RTi8's in front, the CSi5 center, and either the Fxi3's or 5's as the surrounds... with either a SVS or Vel sub on the way.

    My question is about the receiver. Right now I'm comparing the Onkyo 701, Denon ?, and Yamaha 5790. Any suggestions of others I should be looking at? And am I stupid to pass up a deal to get the HK AVR7200 for around $840? I'm leaning towards the Onkyo 701 in the $600-$700 range, depending where I go. Mostly because I hear so many good things about Onkyo's HT performance. Then this HK deal came up and I'm wondering if I'll see a considerable upgrade for the extra $. I know that 7200 is considered to be a beast with lots of power, but will the HT experience be any better?

    Of those you mentioned, my choice would be

    HK 7200- A previous model flagship receiver
    Yamaha 5790 - A very good performer with PL-IIx
    I would not really consider the Onkyo .
