I think I need to replace my aging sony av receiver. It's a Sony STRDG910S and has served me well over the years, but it's creaking a tad now.
What I'd like to do is invest in a thx certified one. I'll have to spend a lot of time calibrating and faffing with the existing equipment etc, but I'll obviously need to upgrade it
2 questions really
1) What's a good entry level THX receiver? The ones I'm seeing are things like the Onkyo 6xx range, at about £500. Do I need to spend this much for a I/S certified THX Reciever? Or can I get it cheaper (I definitely can't afford select or ultra rank and haven't the room space anyway)
2) I've been reading up on the speakers, and thx go on about placement more than anything else. So is it just a case of making sure the speakers and the receiver are happy with each other?
it'll need to be a 7.1 or 7.2 onwards amp, not 5.1
