Tuner is not nessary, I guess I should say prosessor..?
Adcom GFP-750 is hard to beat for under $1M. Passive and active stages, balanced and unbalanced, remote control and an HT Bypass.
Yea, I like the specs, but I'm a little disapointed with my Adcom 550. It suddenly lost all steering direction in the Dolby surround modes, still works in 5,4 and stereo modes. I find myself longing for the "McIntosh sound" that I once had. I sold it when I must have lost my mind.....

It has lots of vintage stuff and a lot of it is McIntosh. Worth a browse.
I would go for a Lex DC-1 and the Creek passive volume control (which I believe has a passthru effect). No multichannel support, but excellent HT and two channel. May run you about $1100 (budgets are made to be broken ;-) M.
I believe you can pick up the adcom GTP-830 for about $899.99.. there's also the outlaw unit in which I do not know the model #.
Marantz av9000 I believe can be had for under a grand on eBay. Great unit, a bit dated; 5 channels, no DPL II, no DTS-EX, etc. Great music performance, build quality, great remote, and a rare built in RF Demod for DD 5.1 laserdisc. I love mine, and have no plans on upgrading.
the outlaw 950 is the best prepro buy...ever.
Is this for 2 channel music? Convergent Audio Cat SL1 reference
Craig, I think Dave was referring to the Outlaw 950 as a "best buy" in terms of price/performance, not as the best pre-pro out there....ever.
Seconds on a used DC-1.
Its a little more expensive, but I really like the Audio Refinement Pre-5 DSP. It retails for $1395, but plays like some much more expensive processors I've heard.
