I had a Kenwood receiver that served me well for over 20 years. So I am looking at the following choices. Any audiophiles in here care to give me what you think would be best and why?
Denon AVR-2312CI Home theater receiver with 3D-ready HDMI switching and Apple AirPlay® at Crutchfield.com
Onkyo TX-NR717 Home Theater A/V Receiver - 7.2 Channel, 770 Watts Total, Optical, HDMI, USB, Black at TigerDirect.com
Right now I'm kind of stuck between the Denon and Onkyo. The Onkyo has wifi which would make it real easy to stream music. It also decodes quite a few more formats, but I've seen more negative reviews. Not a ton but moreso than Denon and I have seen a few people who reviewed both consider the Denon a tad better on sound. I think Onkyo sells a lot more which would reflect a few more negative reviews when put in context. However, the Denon has an ethernet and no wifi, and that would require me running an ethernet cable under the house or buying one of those expensive ethernet into WiFi adapters.
Thoughts? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
