In another post I mentioned that Mitsubishi replaced my dead 6 year old DLP with a brand new one for a very nominal fee. I am happy about that, and now I'd like to get two new items; a new AVR that has say 3-4 HDMI IN and of course 1-HDMI OUT. The other item will probably be a new DVD player and since it seems to be the trend, a Blu-Ray DVD player.
I'm not going to kill myself $$$$ with a audiophile/videophile AVR, I just want something that will work with my current speaker setup (Bose Front/Rears, Infinity Center/Sub). Want something that is HDMI 1.3a even though my new TV is 3D capable. BB has a few AVRs in the $300 range that seem to fit the bill but I'm not sure whether I'd go for a Yamaha (again) or Denon or Onkyo.
With regard to a Blue-Ray player, I've heard that I should stay away from Sony as their quality has slipped? So what about Panasonic or LG or whatever? Looking to spend around $150.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
