Home Theater Receiver recommendations?

So it’s almost about time that I replace my old receiver with something a bit more modern. I’m looking for something with a decent amount of component video ins as well as all the audio whiz bang. Only have a 5.1 setup so don’t really need something 7.1 capable but wouldn’t object. Looking for a reasonable amount of digital audio ins as well. With my current receiver I can only support 3 (maybe just 2) digital audio ins.

What’s your budget?

I just picked up a Denon 3806:


It’s almost $1300. But it’s the lowest cost THX Ultra2 receiver I’ve found.

What do you guys think of the Yamaha single speaker combo reciever dealies?
