Looks like I can get it for around $450.
I'd get a unit that was capable of the newer audio formats. Is that last years model? I only ask because you can get it for nearly half of its MSRP. I'd also want HDMI 1.3 inputs.
The Denons are all HDMI 1.3 inputs.
The Onkyo site is up now:
That model there does everything you need with a $599 MSRP. You should be able to find a deal for it. In fact Crutchfield has it for $469. That is right around $450 and it is a receiver that is fully ready for the future a better investment. Plus it likely sounds better than the JVC too.
