I bought an AVR 225 for $805 CDN from Futureshop. My local NAD dealer has offered me the T742 which includes the newly revised NAD remote with learning capabilities for $900 total. The both output roughly the same power 50 watts(NAD) vs 55 watts (H/K), the DAC's seem to be of the same spec and so do the DSP's. NAD: 4x digital inputs (2x coax, 2x opti) Net Weight 31.24 lbs No digital outputs 5.1 Pre-Outs. Unknown Output Current. H/K: 6x digital inputs (3x coax, 3 opti) 2x digital outputs (1 and 1) No Preouts Ouput Current +/- 28amps Net Weights 26.8 lbs If you had a choice between these 2 amps and only these 2 which would you choose given that it would be a 70/30 split between music/movies. More in-depth specifications ( I tried including the links directly but I got) "In an effort to cut down on the number of members that just post a thread to post a URL to another site you are not allowed to post URLs to other sites until you're here somewhat longer."
