Re: Best AV Receiver for Music
I have to agree with wes, Marantz for music is the way to go.
However many of the features you mention are just not on the Marantz units. They tend to make much simpler units that concentrate on the amplification. Even the newer units with HDMI are kind of basic compared to the competition. From what you are describing it sounds like some of the Denon units would fill your needs better.
