My family living room (20 x 24) is also where I have my A/V equipment. Right now I have the following:
500 GB Playstation 3
Sony 300 Disc Changer
Focal Chorus 826V towers
Focal Chorus CC 800 V Center
Paradigm SA-30 V.3's for the sides and rears
55" Samsung LED TV.
I have never been overly impressed with the Onkyo TX-NR906. I use this setup for probably 60% movies and watching television and 40% music. Music sounds good but not dynamic, movies are good but not really like being in a theatre. I feel like the setup should be more dynamic and louder. I do listen to it at high volume levels from time to time.
Last week the HDMI inputs stopped working, I have googled the issue and I could actually have it fixed locally. I am considering buying a new receiver, or seperates. I really don't want to spend over 2000.00. What do you guys suggest?

There just isn't an A/V receiver that produces good music performance IMO. Part of the problem is the set up for an AV system, your speakers probably aren't positioned for good stereo reproduction. Separates are a bit better but still not perfect for music.
Do you have any local, independent audio retailers in your area?
