    i need some suggestions on picking out a receiver to compliment my speakers..i am replacing a mc-8 lexicon...the speakers are snell towers xa75's..xa 55 center, and 4 psb 10's..looking for a 7.1 receiver..budget somewhere around $1000...i am waiting to buy the oppo 83 when it comes out, as i have a huge collection of sacd's and dvd-a's.....50/50 music and movies...the snell towers have built in subs..just wondering if i should also get a sub for the rear...the room is quite large with 20 ft. ceilings..dimensions of the room are 20x48..i have had health issues that have kept me out of this hobby for 5 years or better..so i consider myself a newbie once again...since my health has greatly improved, i am looking forward to enjoying home theater once again...thanks guys i appreciate any feedback.

    onkyo seems like a good choice..thank you..i was beginning to feel left out(just kidding)...i was looking at the onkyo tx-sr876...do you think this is a good replacement for my lexicon mc-8 or will i be disaapointed?? i got a decent offer on my lex, and i'm on the fence...

    From a Lexicon MC-8 into an Onkyo??? Blasphemy!

    I'm guessing you have a 5 channel amp paired up with the Lexicon and all you need is new processing capacity?

    If I were you, I'd seriously consider the Emotiva UMC-1 (www.emotiva.com) due out any day now. Why waste your time on a receiver if you don't need the amplification section???

    P.S. Why do you want to part with the Lexicon???

    Thought so! Wait for the Emotiva UMC-1 then. At $699 it's a steal. [​IMG]
