Help me upgrade my AV Receiver for 4k

Hi all,

 

I want to get a 4k TV but my AV Receiver doesn't support 4k passthrough with HDMI so I need to upgrade it. I want to keep the speakers I have and I am not sure what spec receiver I need to power the speakers.

 

The receiver is an STR-KS360S and the manual is attached, it has a specification page and I have also taken a capture of the page and attached it. If someone can provide some recommendations on what receiver to get that'd be great or what I need to look for!

 

Thanks!

well for one thing for you to keep the speakers you will need a receiver that is able to power the sub (from what im reading about that set up the sub isnt self powered) ...........i will do some research to see what i can find

 

edit......hmmm after searching through all the pages on amazon the only receivers that are able to power a sub are the ones that comes with speakers. (kind of annoying) there has to be a way to buy the receiver without the speakers...or that would be the option to go..just get the setup that comes with speakers

 

example

or get any 4k receiver you want and just buy a separate powered subwoofer

example
https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SW-E10-300-Watt-Powered-Subwoofer/dp/B00MQES9UQ/ref=sr_1_28?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1546276832&sr=1-28&keywords=subwoofer

Ok interesting, didn't think about the sub. I am just trying to keep the cost down without having to get new speakers or a whole new setup. I am stuck with not being able to go 4k while keeping the same receiver. Another option is to just simply go to a sound bar.

well for a decent 4k 5.1 price starts at about 200 and goes up from there

(i bought this and it works very well, even with my own speakers i built) full 4k 60htz hdr i know its on the low end but it performs very good so no complaints

199 dollers
now sub wise you can go for a polk audio for 90 or go with a better name brand but prices go up from there just depends on how much bass and sound quality you want...unlike me who went with 2 12' subs

What's your budget?  I bought this one for about $350 CAD on Crutchfield and couldn't be happier.  It supports the latest HDMI standards and has plenty of power to drive a 5.1 system with 2 front towers.

hmm you can check accessories4less.com they have some pretty good deals,as far as 4k and that sub you may need to get a separate amp and run the sub off that,just plug the amp in an aux output on the receiver.
