I've had an Outlaw 950 mated to an Outlaw 750, using JBL Studio speakers, for a few years now. It's great and we've loved it, but the 950 has a few niggling issues that we'd like to correct (the most major of which is a 2-3 sec "dropout" every time it switches inputs. Unfortunately our D*TV box can drop the sound for a split sec often, which triggers 3-4 secs of silence as the 950 "readjusts" the sound.) I've been looking around at new gear, but really there is so much it is overwhelming. I really like the look of the Sunfire amps and Theater Grand Pre/Pros, but have a tough time finding reviews. Are these worth it for the price premium, or are there better choices? Are these much better than the 990 and a matched amp from Outlaw? I'd like to stay with separates, but if there are compelling receivers out there I'd look at those too. Our budget is pretty much unlimited, but I would prefer to be around $5k for sanity's sake and wouldn't exceed $10k (we're just too cheap!) We mostly use this system for TV/DVD watching (HT needs), but will also play music or watch concert DVDs occasionally. Also, what speakers would be a good match for whatever pre/amp you suggest? We mount them on the wall near the ceiling, so bookshelf is a must (sorry, no towers allowed 'sez the boss lady.) The center speaker can be big, it reasts under the TV on a cabinet. We have an SVS PB12/2+ right now, so I'm not worried at all about bass duties. That thing works just FINE. So, any suggestions or leads to track down? What's the sweet spot units these days? Thanks in advance for the help.
