  1. Thanks Glenn! I probably wouldn't have thought of that but it could become an issue. But, for now, I only have the issue when I connect through the new Denon. When I connect through my other receiver, I don't have the issue. You also make another good observation, my TV isn't one of the smarter TVs. It has some Smarts but I do stream Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc., through my DVD to get to my TV. But, as I indicated, this hasn't been a problem until this particular Denon. Dallas
  2. "By the pound" is an interesting comparison indeed, one I wouldn't discount without consideration. But, I did recently purchase a pretty lightweight Denon (22lbs) and I think it does a better job than my heavier (32lb) Onkyo at immersing the room in surround sound. But, I have heard good things about the Yamahas so I was curious what others thought. I have heard the Marantz sound and liked it which is why it was already at the top of my list.
  3. What are you thinking Yamaha? Also, given your name, what do you think about the Yamaha RX-A870?
  4. The AVR is really the only new addition. All of this was working fine until my Onkyo went out. Then I used my Integra for a few weeks until I bought the Denon. I had no problems with the Integra either. But, the Denon is the best of the group so I would like to keep it, but I can't have the picture blacking out when I am streaming Netflix. Regular TV works great. I am going to see if streaming Amazon is a problem as well. I expect it should be.
  5. I guess I dont understand. Everything is connected via HDMI, so audio and video all pass through the same connection. So, are you saying I should add a digital audio output connection from my receiver to my TV, if possible?
  6. I want to use my Klipsch speakers and surround sound by going through my receiver. It's the whole reason I have a receiver.
  7. I recently purchased a Denon AVR-S720W but I am having an annoying issue arise. As I am watching Netflix, the picture will go black like it is losing connection and then it will usually come back after a few seconds. I am streaming through my DVD player so when I connect my DVD player directly to my TV I don't experience this problem. This leads me to believe it is a problem with the receiver. Now, I am going to try and hardwire the receiver to the router instead of using WIFI, do you think that will resolve the problem? Any other ideas for what the issue might be and what could be a solution?
  8. I checked out Accessories4less. I will keep my eye on them for deals.
  9. I purchased a Denon AVR-S720W to get me by until I find the right Marantz. So, let me know when you have one I can consider. I will bump this from time to time.. Thanks!
  10. I am located in Edmond OK, 73034.
  11. Yes, the poster told me today that he sold it yesterday.
  12. I am needing an AVR, one I can also stream Pandora, YouTube Music, etc...
  13. My Onkyo went out on me so I am looking for a replacement. I have owned a Marantz before and love the sound so what do you have to offer?
  14. How does this Receiver compare to the SR5014?
  15. Ok, I found an Integra DRX 3.1 that had everything I wanted and it gives me the opportunity to test a new brand with my Klipsch speakers! It was about $90 more than I wanted to spend but I just wanted something different. This will be my 4th HTR, with my first being a Denon, then a Marantz, and now an Onkyo. My favorite has been the Marantz, so far, but I have high hopes for the Integra! I want to try an Elite Pioneer and a Yamaha next... Just a quick story from yesterday... when I go to most houses, I can tell what is on TV and what is live. Yesterday, my wife hears her phone ringing... she looks around and then realizes, "hey, it's a phone ringing on the TV." That is the degree of realism I want to hear from my speakers and receiver combination. If a plate shatters on the TV, I want to be looking around my feet to see if there are shards of glass down there! LOL! Now, maybe I can get that from other speakers and maybe I can't, I just know I get that from my Klipsch and that is what I love! Thanks to all and have a wonderful holiday season!
  16. Right as I was about to pull the trigger on the Integra, I noticed it doesn't have 4K Video Upscaling while the Denon does... this sounds like it could be a useful attribute for a receiver connected to a 4K TV. Any insights?
  17. Yes, that is the eternal dilemma! I am planning to move my RB5s as mains in my bedroom but it will leave me with no surrounds at all. I want something that I can hang higher so the surround can reach my hearing range better. The RB5s are overkill as well.
  18. I am always waiting on RS7s to magically appear on my door step... but I am always disappointed. Anyone have a set of RS 35s or 7s that they would like to part with? Any other comparable surrounds? Thanks!
  19. I don't need a phono input so I will see if I can locate an Integra at my price point... I didn't remember seeing one at accessories4less. I went back and saw your link to: $299 - INTEGRA DRX-2.1 7.2-Ch x 80 Watts A/V Receiver It may be the leader with just a few holes to go... Thanks!
  20. Since it appears I have missed out on the Pioneer Elite (I was away from my office a few days) then I have contacted Metropolis and will check what he has before I decide between the options I have provided above. With that said, of the options I provided, which would be your HTR of choice? I have had a Denon before (not that they are all the same) but I haven't had a Yamaha or a Pioneer. Any other suggestions at this $300 price point? Thanks everyone for the great feedback!
  21. Ok, I have perused the accessories for less and this is what I have narrowed it down to: the first two are definitely overkill for my purposes but that is just how I operate... $270 YAMAHA RX-V583 7.2-Ch x 80 Watts A/V Receiver - has the 4K and the music casting that is required, and then more bells and whistles that might be needed should I ever need to move it into the living room as a back-up. $299 DENON AVR-X2400H 7.2-Ch x 95 Watts A/V Receiver w/HEOS - seems to be even more robust than the one above and will also work as a back-up for my main system. What does "w/ HEOS" really mean? $189 PIONEER VSX-832 5.1-ch x 80 Watts A/V Receiver - This one is only on the list because I wanted to consider a Pioneer. I am not sure this one will support 3D video (just want the capability since I have a 3D television and want the ability to back up my living room system if necessary. Better Pioneer Receiver within $300 that should be considered here? Of these three, I am leaning towards the Denon, just because it seems to be the best bargain for the money. But the Yamaha has me very intrigued because I have heard how well they pair with Klipsch. Any additional input for me to consider? Thanks!
  22. Thanks, I will check them out! Any recommendations on brand?
  23. Hey guys and gals! I am looking for an HTR that has Bluetooth so my wife can cast her music from her phone and it needs to have 4K compatibility to match her TV. It can be 5.1, we don't really need 7.2 but if that option is comparably priced then please provide it. I will be matching this HTR with a couple of RB-5 bookshelf speakers as mains and a RW-12. Surround speakers will be purchased later. Price range- <$400 but if you have something close then go ahead and provide it. So, what options do you have for me to consider? Thanks!
  24. It's about time to pull out my Fifth Element blue ray... 🤗 I think the last one I watched was Polar Express.
