Hi Peeps,

Looking for a new AVR, max $2000.

Have been using a Pio VSX-D2011 for the past 8 years with KEF 2005.1 speakers.

Building a HT, the speakers will stay for the time being, but would like the following,

HDMI(with passthrough)
HD Audio support
Ethernet
At least 1 Component out connection
Easy access to IR remote codes with plenty of discrete's(have MX-980 that will be controlling everything)

Uses = 60% movies, 35% music, 5% gaming

So far I've looked at these

Denon 4520 = over budget

Denon 3313

Onkyo 818

Cambridge Audio 551R = sounds good on paper but not enough connections/IR would need a tone of macro's

Thoughts?
D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F

Take a look at the Yamaha Aventage Line. Should work for you for all your criteria and be with budget. They have all the codes you will need on the YamahaPAB website. If you are a DIYer you will not have access but if you pm me for the codes you want, I can provide them for you.

If you care about sound quality, then Arcam AVR400 would be best and has all the features you list.
