I am beginner in the world of A/V receivers. I am a music lover and looking out for a good a/v receiver & speaker combination. I don't want to spent too much but willing to pay up to $1K. I have researched and now confused between Yamaha RX-V677 and Onkyo TX-NR727. Looking at the reviews Energy 5.1 Take Classic seems like a good pairing within my budget. I have also looked at the Klipsch QUINTET 5.0 (75 Watt) with Klipsch SW-350 sub. I live in a townhouse and do not want to produce earth-shaking music but I love listening to music at low/moderate volume. I am more into music than movies.

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

How to Choose: AV Receiver: Home Theater Buy Guide › wws-underground › entries
Identify what you're hooking the receiver up to. If your new receiver is for music only, you want a stereo receiver. If it's for surround sound in a home theater system, you want an AV receiver. If it's for both music and home theater, the AV receiver gets it done – and then some.

I am also new to this so I am taking note of all of the suggestions. And I am googling them to check the specifications.
I think (from my personal opinion) Energy 5.1 Take Classic setup would be nice for a start then you may upgrade later on.

I use a Shield TV so that plugs into my receiver and the receiver plugs into my projector. Yes you will lose Atmos on Netflix if you do it this way, but you'll also avoid a lot of headaches from ARC. Eventually Netflix will bring Atmos support to other devices (it's lossey Atmos anyway).

As for multiple remotes, get a Logitech Harmony remote (650 is popular) to solve that issue.

In my opinion, Onkyo TX-NR727 is better.

Energy 5.1 Take Classic setup is great for it's price. As a proud owner of a home theater built on a budget, I can tell. I'm a music lover too (into rock and metal recently), not an audiophile though, but bass rocks.
