I'm new here but love this msg board. It's a wealth of info!

I'm looking for a new receiver in the ~$300-$500 range. Here's what I have:

--Fairly avg to small size living room (no idea the dimensions offhand)
--Hitachi Rear Proj 51' HD TV
--DirecTV with Samsung SIR360 HD receiver
--Two older (around 8-10 yrs) Klipsch floor speakers (I love them) that I use as front speakers for 5.1 surround sound. Recently bought Klipsch satellite speakers & subwoofer for 5.1.
--Cheap/crappy Samsung all in one receiver/dvd that I want to replace.

I want 7.1. I like the crispy (I think referred to as bright) kinda tingy sound. This will be used for about 75% TV, 10% DVD, 15% Music. Was looking at the Yamaha HTR-5760 & RX-V650 but reviews here do not sound promising. Looking for suggestions..Sounds like Pioneer, H/K, Marantz (if the price is right), Sony may be what I should look at??

Thanks for your suggestions!
