The TX-SR307 doesn't do HDMI audio, it's a switch only.

I took some time off, and already shipped the Sony back to newegg. Total loss was $40 for Shipping and restocking fee.

Concerning the Onkyo, the 65 wpc is no-go for me. I would rather have the Pioneer with 110 wpc. I'll buy one, and if I like it, I'll buy another one for my son later. It would also make it easier to help him if I knew my way around the same model good.

I think I've found a decent cheaper variety of receiver. It cost double what I started out with, but it seems to be the best one for the price range. It's the Yamaha RX-V465. $330 from both Newegg and Best Buy. It has 4 HDMI input and blue tooth connection to my computer. Reviews all look good. 2 year instead of 1 year mfg warranty. Auto EQ. Lots of sound decoders.

Better yet would be the Onkyo TX-SR607 if I can find 2 of them on sale at a decent price. Refurbished perhaps.

Yeah, you do get quite a few more options for HDMI audio when you get into the $300+ range. Sub $200 is much more sparse.

I don't care if it comes in purple, if I can get it at a good price. I've never heard of "High end electronics" in Tampa, Florida, though. Are there any user ratings on this site somewhere? Searching for it, but haven't found any yet.

I've never dealt with them before, Cat. I found them on "thefind.com" when I searched that specific Onkyo model. There were others priced in the $400 range as well if you want to do your own search.

Geez, I just found a black one at the same store for $253.58!! almost sounds too good, doesn't it?

They also have the Denon AVR1910 for $307.44, which, at first glance, looks to be as good as the Onkyo SR607.

I sent their sales department an e-mail asking them to verify the validity of their site, and what condition the Denon was in, New, Used, Broke, etc. (I don't suppose they would rat on themselves, but if they don't show me anything, that would definitely be telling).
