A friend of mine is looking to replace his Yamaha DSP-A1 with a seperate pre-amp. He is already using his Yamaha as a pre-amp and using an Outlaw 750 to power his speakers. Speakers are Klipsch with Chorus's up front, and Academy center channel and dipole's as rear and front surrounds. He is looking to spend between 1k and 2k. I thought I would try to help him out and gather a few ideas from the board. Thanks for any suggestions.
