and been ultimately satisfied? I am currently doing this and I know I will be very happy for HT performance but I just wonder where I will be on 2-channel and hi rez format listening. I will still be using my separate amps for the front soundstage and the Elite for the rears. I could save a good deal of money by purchasing the Sherwood prepro but I wonder where this would really fall in the pecking order compared to these flagships. I know I am opening up a pandora's box here but try to act civilized and give honest opinions. Thanks.
