I am currently using a Onkyo 787 as my current receiver. For speakers I am
using powered AR P428PS for fronts, AR C225PS for center, AR-215PS bookshelf
for surround back/1 surround center and a Velodyne CHT-15 as a subwoofer.
6.1 set up. I am looking to gain Pro logic II and DTS NE0. Most of the
movies and shows on TV (Satellite) are in 2 channel digital, with the
exception of new movies on HBO. My main interests are movies, but music is
also important. I have considered the Marantz 7300, Yamaha RVX-2300 and the
Pioneer Elite 43tx or 45tx. I want to stay under $700. I just replaced my AC
($4000) on my house (I live in Phoenix, so AC is a must) so play funds are a
little tight. These receivers can be had at close out prices. I considered
Newer Onkyo and Denon, but for what I am looking for, they are a little to
rich for my blood at this time.
Should I wait for the New Prologic IIx units?
Other then the speaker calibration feature (I have a SPL meter), what are the main difference in the 43tx and 45tx? Does the 43tx have input renaming? Are the digital inputs assignable?
