Deemon,

Summary: the Onkyo is very user-friendly, has tons of features, looks awesome, was a huge improvement over my cheapie Sony...but for listening to music, it was less than what I was hoping for. For movies though it was great---so just depends on what you're after. I tend to listen to music at least 60% of the time so...

Right now I'm checking out the Marantz 5400 and 6400 as possible upgrades, will audition them in a few days alongside an Onkyo 602, that will give me a conclusive idea.

The Denon isn't much better than the Onkyo at music. As to surround, I think the Onkyo is right up there with the Denon.

edster, none of your suggestions are particularly musical in my view. The only makes I consider musical at relatively sensible money are Arcam, NAD and Rotel.

Regards,
Frank.

Arcam,NAD and Rotel are way more money than the original poster is talking about. When you are talking about $500 and under receivers is a $2000 Arcam "sensible" money? The Marantz line is very musical and so is the Elite line. Granted they don't have the snob appeal of Arcam, NAD or Rotel but are excellent nontheless. Only NAD makes anything close to a budget receiver anyway.
Edster,
You are right to ckeck out the Marantz and IMO the 5400 is a great budget receiver, best in class in my book.

Frank,

Oh well, it appears you have a different concept of "sensible money" than I do...half a grand is my rock-bottom ceiling.
