OK, so Amazon/J&R have it for $650 shipped. Sounds like a good deal to me and it has rave reviews from the Klipsch forum. The heat build-up is not an issue, as it's home would have same ventalation as if I put it on the ground in the middle of a warehouse (wire rack, 1' above it, >1' to either side, 1' behind, etc.) I know there are 'some' quality issues, but this is still mass-market gear and QA sometimes has to suffer so prices can stay low. If I buy through J&R, it is an authorized dealer, so no big deal. Ultimatly, this thing will be driving Klipsch Reference gear, so I don't need 200 watts a channel. Questions: Compared to my current $300 Sony receiver, will the headphone amp be a lot better? I use headphones a lot. Anything else I should know???!!! Thanks! Even with my weak JBL's, I feel going from the Sony to this will make a HUGE difference in sound quality, as my Sony was designed to drive a cheap HT, not a tool/toy for someone into audio.
