If I can get some of the questions I have about the manual answered on the "manual" thread, my Sony TA-E9000ES would be gone.

Serge no thought about taking advantage of the Klipsch/Mondial Designs upgrade for the ACT 3?

(I have 2 Acurus A200x3 amps, and I'm stilling mulling this one. I've seen used Act3's for $600, and with the $900 upgrade price, puts you at $1500. More than the Outlaw, but potentially better performance and definately better looks Posted Image than the Outlaw.)
If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.

Along with a Parasound HCA-1205A, the 950 will replace a Sony Pro-Logic receiver I bought in 1994. My speakers are awaiting the day that I bring them home a new friend! I believe they will get along much better with their new friends compared to the Sony. I just recently made the move from Sony speakers to a decent Paradigm setup. Moving on up to say the least.

Speakers:
Paradigm Monitor 11's (Fronts)
Paradigm Mini-Monitor (Rears)
Paradigm CC-370 (Center)
Paradigm PW-2200 or Servo 15 (Coming soon!)

If I had the cash the 950 would replace my Marantz AV560U Pre/pro. But for now I'm content with my modest seperate setup.

Marantz A560U Pre/pro
Rotel RMB-1066(6x60..3x150)
Paradigm Mini Monitors(F/R)
Paradigm CC-350
Paradigm PS1000

I too have the Marantz SR780. I'd sure be insterested in hearing a report on how you like the transition. What amps will you use and what speakers are you driving?

This is interesting.

Isn't there anyone replacing an older higher end pre/pro like a Lexicon, Marantz, B&K, Parasound, etc...?
