    For 2 channel stereo music listening only, a HK 3475 receiver passively biamped with a HK PA2000 power amp or an Onkyo TX8511 receiver passively biamped with an Onkyo M282 power amp? I have a Circuit City gift card that would pretty much cover either set up. Or other options from other brands, such as Denon, Marantz, NAD, Rotel, Adcom, etc.?
    Opinions wanted please, and thanks in advance.

    I have used a couple of HK stereo receivers in my home office setup. When I went to an adcom gfa5300 80x2 and adcom gtp600 DPL preamp/tuner (same sonics as 2 channel gtp450), I thought I had better bass and a better tuner. You can pickup a used adcom preamp/tuner for under 200 and a 5300 amp around 250 (mine is for sale in the classified forum). Use your circuit city gift card for software or a cd/dvd player.
