Sooo... My nice and cheap LG HTIB system is due for replacement, coinciding with my jump from a 720 to 1080p projector (Optoma HD20), and some new speakers (the Pioneer ones designed by Andrew something...).
Must have upconversion of all sources to HDMI. Imperative for wii functionality with the PJ.
Must have pandora and network capability. Ability to access networked drives would be fantastic.
AirPlay would be great.
Would love one of the fancy auto setup thingies with the mic (audyssey, yamaha's setup, etc.).
A good GUI.
Ability to hook up a non-powered subwoofer.
Currently looking at several different models from the major players... Budget is $400, but less (while retaining good sound and the features I want) is even better. So far I'm vetting:
Any other models I should be considering? If not, what would be the best bang for my buck out of the three above? Currently I'm leaning towards the Denon because it has AirPlay.
Any insight is greatly appreciated!
