OK home theatre savvy Dopers,
I have an Onkyo TXNR646 AVR that has given up the ghost on the HDMI board. I’m looking for a replacement that won’t suck that is 5.1.2 Atmos capable since that is how my room is configured. Cost to repair is going to be $300-400 and Onkyo won’t sell me a replacement board to install myself. If I have to spend almost the same price to repair the thing, and wait for the crappy design to fail, I’d rather spend it toward a new one.
I don’t want to spend any more than $1000 USD if I don’t have to. My top contender right now is an NAD T758 v3 but it’s at the very top of what I could possibly spend.
What would you go with and why?
