    Has technology come far enough that a sub $200 Dolby Digital receiver could out perform a mid line 10 year old Yamaha Pro-logic receiver? I am trying to help a friend with weather there would be a large enough gain with a DD receiver to out way the loss in performance in other areas.

    If so what receiver would you recommend. It would be used for movies only and it would need enough grunt to power an pair of maggies

    Also what would be the cheapest DD receiver he could buy with preamp outs?

    A used/new Pioneer 811 if you still can find one has pre-outs or even the 812.
