So I've had a Pioneer VSX-1022-K and it's served me well, until it broke. The HDMI passthrough stopped working so I had to run everything straight to the TV. It also randomly restarts every so often.
So I was reading on CNet that the Sony STR-DN840 is its best buy but some of the features don't mean much to me. I don't need WiFi since I have a wired connection there, I don't use Bluetooth or AirPlay. I basically need a good 5.1 (not even 7.1) receiver with HDMI passthrough receiver. At about $100 cheaper I was thinking of the Denon AVR-E300 as being a good alternative. It seems to have all my needs covered.
Any Neowin audiophile want to give me some suggestions?
