I am looking for a recommendation for a new AVR, or at least for the features I should look for.
- Which DTS and Dolby versions are important?
- Are HDMI ARC and HDR required?
- HDCP version?
- Anything else I should look for?
I don't think 7.2 vs 5.1 is important. I have 5 speakers plus a powered subwoofer.
I have a DVD/Blu-ray player to integrate into the same set-up.
I would like to minimize the number of remotes involved for day-to-day use. (I don't mind using a separate remote for the DVD/Blu-ray.) I foresee a problem being able to control both TV power and AVR volume with the same remote. Is this an issue or does the latest HDMI allow both power (for TV) and volume (for AVR) to be controlled by the same Roku remote?
I'd like to keep it under, say, $600. I don't want one of those multi-thousand dollar behemoths!
