User Review: T 755 A/V Surround Sound Receiver - Lovin' My T-755

Products: T 755 A/V Surround Sound Receiver
I kept waiting for my 10 year old Marantz Dolby Digital receiver to die but it would not. With a new HDTV, HD DirecTV and AppleTV, those S-video connections just weren't cutting it. Having been out of the market for so long, I was completely underwhelmed with all of the cookie cutter receivers from Denon, Onkyo and Pioneer. The latest Marantz units looked nice but having owned some NAD amp and pre-amps for over 20 years, I really wanted to see what they had to offer. I found an Onkyo receiver at Crutchfield that on paper, seemed to do it all and at $400, seemed like a no brainer. After ordering it and spending hours trying to figure out why my great new HDMI connections were not working, I found an article on the Crutchfield website detailing the many issues with HDMI connectivity. I have a first generation 1080p LCD set and the necessary handshake between the receiver and TV would not stay connected.
