A list of Receivers


Novice Member
Hey Guys,


Had a 2.0 system, I found a sound bar, sold my Onkyo 609, bought the Harmon Kardon SB 26, set it up, listened to it, packed it right the fudge back up and now I'm on a "help choose a receiver even though I just had one a few days ago" thread... FML

I still have my polk RTi4s. I use this as my tv speakers. I listen loud to music mostly (wifi streaming with amazing onkyo app) and the odd movie night. Musically my current set up was very enjoyable, movies - not so much but that's my fault for not having a sub. I may end up buying one just for movie nights after this.

Can you guys give me your opinions on the receivers from the uploaded pictures? I can also get a Denon AVR1912 used for $225 and it's in my neighbourhood on craigslist, I've read that's a good one. Most importantly, I enjoyed the sound and power from the TX-NR609 and don't want anything less, 7.2 was a bit overkill though, not needed as I only have 2.0 right now and will never have 7.2

Common sense would dictate that if you liked the Onyko you had before, then you should just buy another? Maybe even go for a slight upgrade and get the next model up?

This makes the most sense to me.

They no longer sell the 609. They do have the 626 though, I believe these have a high failure rate. But I'm coming to the boards to see if my money would be better spent in another product.
