I'm thinking of upgrading the AV receiver in our home, which happens to be a 45' Class A RV. It's a Newmar King Aire, for those who know RVs. The living area has a 52" Sony Bravia (circa 2007-2008), and a Pioneer VSX-1017TXV-K receiver. 6 small satellite type speakers and a subwoofer. There's no center channel speaker, the system was originally wired to put the center channel through the TV using the pre-out jacks on the Pioneer. I was having problems with that, so right now it's only using the L/R front speakers with the receiver set to pseudo-center (or whatever it's called). Due to the way the TV is mounted, there really is no place to put a center channel speaker that would get spouse-approved.I'm willing to try with the TV speakers again, so I need the new receiver to have pre-outs for the center channel. It's a small space (no kidding), so I don't need a lot of power.Other requirements:HDMI switching, 4 inputs minimum - Sat rcvr, BD Player, AppleTV, game console. A spare would be nice.Audio Return would be nice, but the Sony doesn't do that now. For future TV upgrade.Zone 2 analog outs, so I can leave the headphones connected to them and switch audio zonesAirplay support would be nice, but I have an AppleTV that will do if neededWorks well with Logitech Harmony remotesSmaller is better. I don't have a lot of room in the equipment cabinet, and the Pioneer is bigger than I would like.I have no analog sources at all, and really don't need any analog inputs. Probably can't avoid them.Good auto-balancing capability. The Pioneer is decent. I think most receivers have this now.Don't need iPod/iPhone dock. We'll use AppleTV or AirPlay.I'm sure I missed something.Any suggestions?
