Re: Best non-HDMI receiver??
I would say you're going to want an HDMI capable receiver, however, all of the brands you mentioned do offer HDMI capable receivers in or around the $500 range.
Denon 2307-$799.00 retail
Yamaha RX-V661-$549.00 retail
Onkyo TX-SR674-approx $600.00 retail
I'm sure there are others but here's a start.
