Default Receiver with Pre-outs

Hey everyone. I go by refractor1 and am new to posting in the forum.

Over the past 6 months I purchased a 65 inch 4K HDR TV.I also added a 4K Blu-ray player.
I have a pair of Energy CF-70's for my fronts and an Energy CC-10 for my center. I have a pair of Polk bookshelf speakers for my surrounds.

I dont have a sub yet,but most importantly I dont have a Receiver that handles 4K HDMI processing. So I am trying to find a lower priced receiver that has full pre-outs so I can add an external amp in time.
Do any of you guys with much more experience know of any that would be a good fit to my system.

Thanks Everyone.

Budget involved would help you getting an answer

Thanks for the reply.
I was hoping to stay within $400-$600.

Would a refurbished unit be an option?

Refurbished or used would certainly be an option. Do you have a local higher end audio store that deals used audio trade in's? Give them a call.
If you could save up a couple hundred dollars more a new Denon 3500 would serve you well?

Thank You, I will do.

I have a store named Audio Advice about an hour and a half away from me. Looking at their site now.

How do you feel about Marantz.

Marantz is better than most....my $.02

An idea to consider is spend the extra money for the Denon 3500(or similar) which would do just fine on it's own and forgo the cost of an extra amp(s). Then look to get a nice sub?

Thanks for the help and advice. I pulled the trigger on an Onkyo RZ-810 from Amazon.

Though no longer in production it is a brand new unit and I got it for a great price.

Cool, hope it works out for you.
Are you still thinking amps or sub down the road?
Give an update when able

Cheers

Thank You most kindly my friend.

Currently I am looking at a sub next. Nothing too fancy but more of a low end place holder until I can improve my surrounds and my sub.
It's a small room(only about a 11 x11)
