Hello! I am searching for a Harman Kardon receiver and have been looking at the 110, 120, 125, 210, 220, 225, 310, 320, 325, 510, 520, and 525. For economic reasons, the 525, 325, and possibly the 520 are out of the question (I would like to find something preowned for less than $300 if possible). So, I know that all of the '25 series receivers use 24bit, 192khz processors and have Logic 7 and a few other odds and ends, and I like the idea of 192khz processors. Do the '10 or '20 series have 192khz? Personally I could care less about 6.1 or 7.1 channel surround sound, so any of these receivers will suit my output needs. I would appreciate anyone's thoughts on which receiver might be best or what separates these receivers from each other. Thanks!

Ed-the 192khz processing seems to sound a lot like my Clarion DRX-9255 car audio CD player with dual 20 bit burr-brown DAC's and 105db S/N ratio. My old Onkyo sounded like, well, it was very flat and lifeless; no live sound to it. I hear that the optical output from an SACD or DVD-Audio player can be routered through 192khz processing as well...

Other than that, it's really just personal preference I guess :D

Greg-yes, you're right. I should elaborate though; this is actually going to end up being my parent's second room receiver in less than a year and I myself will probably purchase a 325 or 525 at that point. $400 is a screaming deal for that unit, no doubt!
