Ok, here is my quandary. I've just recently setup my home theater after a big move and I got the Harman/Kardon AVR-8000 as my processor for its Logic 7 capability (purchased some months ago). However, reading through some more recent discussion on the AVR-8000, it seems to me that its 7-channel capabilities are compromised and, while I think it is a very good overall processor, I really prefer a dedicated processor over a receiver. Enter the Integra DTC-9.4. This processor seems to have alot of bang for the buck. A local dealer has offered me a good price and I'm very inclined to take it, but before I go ahead and spend some more on my HT, I'd like to get some feedback from some others on how much of an upgrade this would be? Is this simply a lateral move or a true upgrade? The Integra has Ultra-2 processing modes, an OSD thru its component video outputs, I think more processing power, and stastistically should sound cleaner. Does that sound right? To give you a better idea of the system, this is what I'm running nowadays: Magnepan MGCC2 (center) Magnepan MG1.6s (fronts) Magnepan MG12s (sides and rears) SVS 16-46CS+ (two) Citation 7.1 amps (two) Citation 5.1 amp Pioneer DV-47Ai and some other misc. electronics.... Thanks in advance for any advice!!
