Six months after I started my search for a new AVR, I am back at square one. I would love separates, but can’t afford to spend more than $1500. I’d like to spend a lot less. Yet in my HT room, I will never be able to use a 7th channel, so I don’t want to pay for an amp that I will never use. Now I’m focusing on 6-channel receivers. I could even go for a 5-channel AVR and add a 1-channel amp later (is there such a thing? And what would be a good, inexpensive choice?) Hence the question. What’s the best 6-channel amp in terms of value ($1200 or under) and features? My primary listening habit is 65-35 music to home theater. I like the specs on the upcoming Nad T762, but I am also looking at Yamaha, HK, Denon, Onkyo, Pioneer Marantz. Any thoughts on existing or upcoming models?
