Onkyo TX-SR504 (black)

 

As for dimensions, the receiver is 17.1 inches wide, almost 6 inches high, and 14.75 inches deep, and it weighs a modest 21.2 pounds. As is the case with many A/V receivers, this model's amplifiers generate a fair amount of heat, so make sure to...

Great - Easy to set up

 

Almost bought a $1,000 system because I thought I needed HDMI. Discovered that I could connect HDMI direct from my Cable box and DVD player to my Sony XBR3 and Optical from both to the reciever. Works great and I saved $700.

Easy - don't need HDMI or HDMI pass through if you have HDMI on TV

Trying to find some - not yet

easy to set up, lots of available ports (digital and RCA)
