I'm hoping some of you can help me out with a few choices. I've decided to sell my 1 month old AVR7200 and go with the pre-pro route. I'm getting a little confused though, looking through all these choices - I can't figure out from the mfr's webpages what exactly some of these have??? My criteria is the following: -2 channel music is VERY important. I have a Jolida tube CDP that I don't want to mess up. ;-) -7.1. I already have the speakers, so I'd like to be able to use them. -DPLIIx. I've gotten so used to watching regular tv and non DD/DTS movies in Logic7, that I don't think I can do without a surround mode for 2 channel. -Multichannel music. Just bought a Denon 2900, mostly to have good SACD/DVD-A music. I believe I need an analog passthru for this? -Crossover settings. I have full range mains, but everything else needs to be crossed over higher... This is probably less important than the others Budget is $1-2k, although I'd obviously rather fall in at the lower end. Here's what seems to fall within my range: *Anthem AVM20 *EAD Encore/Ovation/8000pro (latter of which seems to cost too much for my budget) *B&K ref 30/50 *Aragon soundstage/stage 1 *Sunfire theater grand I/II, III seems to be too expensive *Sherwood P965 *Rotel RSP-1068 *Outlaw 950 Arcam / Krell / Bryston all seem to be beyond my price range. So, can anyone give me a push in the right direction? Most of those listed are not available locally, so demoing all but the Rotel is out of the question. Thanks in advance!
