Wanted AV Receiver

Hello all,
My son is looking for an AV Receiver that is in very good shape and has 5 HDMI inputs that all work. Remote would be nice as well, I have been pretty lucky more than once here on Polk Forum buying used Receivers so why not see what is out there and if you have something laying you can part with for a kid in college on limited income let me know please.

Thanks

    If he already has an AVR, have you considered an HDMI switch as an option? It will be much cheaper and I find the switches useful.

    Yea Ivan if he still has the one I sold him the monoprice hdmi switchers work great, and grab a refurbished harmony remote to power it all. All in much less than a new receiver...

    He has nothing trying to build something. I have a set of speakers I will give him.

    Der duh der, I missed the "V" part of your request and the requirement for HDMI ports. I'm dumb.

    Oh well, I'm going to leave those links there because they represent a nice value for anyone looking to get into stereo stuff.

    I don’t have one I can send you, but you could look for a Yamaha RX-c665 if you could do with one less HDMI input. Very reliable, and can actually drive some (relatively) difficult speakers with (relative) ease.generally go for $50-150 for beaten up models to pristine. I’m not looking to get rid of mine, so just a suggestion.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    heck I'd keep that for myself and give him my old Yamaha Rx-v1800 ....

    He needs 5 HDMI ports. heck if I didn't just fork over money for the OPPO I'd be all over this Larry. :D

    Same deal as the Onkyo.

    No crackling noises.
