I've been poking around at choices on Amazon, and at the moment, I have it centered in on these two. Anyone have any opinions about the units themselves? Reasons for why I should go for the more expensive model of the two? Or reasons why I should go with the cheaper? I'm also open to suggestions, though I'm trying to keep it from Amazon since I have prime, and it makes shipping on these heavy beasts free.
Anyway, the two I'm looking at are:
The cheaper of the two is:Sony STR-DH700
The somewhat more expensive receiver that I'm also looking at is:The Sony STR-DH800 for $269
The biggest difference seems to be one more HDMI input, and Dolby TrueHD support.
They're both getting really solid reviews, and while neither will run component signals through the HDMI connection, at least they're not just pass-through HDMI connections like a couple other 7.1 systems I've seen for cheaper.
Anyway, any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
