I am looking to buy a new receiver. It will be used primarily for movies. I am willing to spend up to $500. I have read about the Kenwood VR-8070 and the Pioneer VSX-1014 and both seem to be a lot of 'bang for your buck' and both are THX Select certified.
Which should I get? Are there other receivers in that price range I should be considering?
As I say on almost every post it really depends on you taste in audio. I'm the type of guy who turns up the treble a little in his car, I like a more detailed sound over a more bassy sound. The pioneer is a great receiver. The H/K isn't bad but for the money the Pioneer IMO is the better buy.
Thanks for all the input so far. One more option to throw out there...
