Are these flagship HK AVR's the best sounding receivers or is it just me? I bought a 1500A Parasound amp and I think the HK honestly sounded better. The HK seemed smoother and just as if not more detailed. I just remember the HK sounding all around better. Unfortuantely the HK7000 blew an output stage and thats why I bought the amp as I was going to go to seperates but now I am thinking of buying the newer AVR7200 or 8000 instead. To be fair though I couldn't do A/B testing b/c the HK is dead but my impressions was dissapointment with the Parasound. Not that the parasound sounds bad by any means. It sounds good just not as good as I rememeber the HK sounding. Maybe its just me but it seems these seperates arent all they are cracked up to be or maybe its just that the high-end all-in-one receivers can be just as good or even better than mid-level seperates. PS-I know these HK's may not have great reliability or the most features, but from my experience they sound pretty incredible.
