What are the best music focused stereo receivers and AVR's for 2.1 home theater in the $600 range? TV, Nvidia Shield, and Blu-Ray, in small condo living room. Currently running two Kef Q150 and single RSL Speedwoofer run off a 2 channel Denon D-41 mini hi-fi. Surprisingly good for a litttle receiver, but looking for a step up in sound quality and AVR features.
Marantz NR1200, lacks sub crossover, NR1510 looks like good option, Denon DRA-800H has some good deals, vs now discontinued STR-DN1080, available used. Planning to stay with a 2.1 set up, may eventually go to a 3.1 set up with a center channel speaker, but no plans for surround sound 5.x, 7.x, 9.x, 240.24 (240 speaker and 24 subs), etc.
