Hello all I am new to this community but have been an online forum user for many years (cars, motorcycles, pwc etc). Yesterday I had a power surge disable my home theater system and am in the market to do this one the "right way". My last system was one of the SONY boxed systems that is a BR player, surround sound, apps etc. What ever the power surge was seemed to have traveled through the HDMI Cable. On top of the system being disabled (still turns on but no functions) my TV lost its #1 HDMI Input (others still work) and my DirecTV box HMDI output is dead as well. I almost went with another similar SONY or Samsung boxed system but I figured I would take a ride to my local AV store. What they recommended to set me up with was the: Onkyo TX-NR636 and a Polk 5 speaker & sub kit. I do not have the model number for the speakers but the total came to 800.00 before tax. I do like the NR636 but also came across the SONY STR-DN1060 as well as the Polk Blackstone TL250 which currently come with the Polk PSW111 for free on Crutchfield. This setup comes to $1050. Items that will be used with this system is my PS4 and DirecTV. I would like a system that would stay "up with the times" for a reasonable period. I do like having the WiFi apps but is not the most important thing since the PS4 will be hooked up to it. I read that the Onkyo does have more apps to offer. I would also like something that will be 4K ready for if/when the time comes to replace my main TV. I plan on using the 2nd channel for some outdoor speakers so a system that can be controlled by a cell phone app would be convenient as well. So right now from my own shopping around I am between the Onkyo TX-NR636, NR737 and SONY STR-DN1060 for the receiver and Polk TL250 & PSW111. What receiver would you guys recommend for this setup. I am also open to other receiver/speaker combos if you have something else in mind. If you made it this far in my post I apologize for the length and adding yet another "What should I" thread. I know these posts on my other forums drive the experienced community crazy (including myself) but now I am the one doing it. Thanks everyone in advance.
