I have immeresed myself over the last few weeks in researching receivers in anticipation of my tax refund. I'm doing an entry level HT and I've narrowed my search down to a refurbed Denon AVR-1705 or a new Sherwood 8601. I have chose these two because they are both in the same price range (D=$200, S=$240) and they both offer up video conversion from RCA, coax, S-video etc. to component video. So I guess the question is which one? Thanks.
