I'm having a really hard time making a decision on whether to buy a Signature 2.0 pre/pro to go with my HK 2.1 power amplifier. I've searched the forums, google, audioreview, and pretty much everything. The problem is that I'm getting conflicting opinions - some people love it, some people say HK is junk. I think part of the problem is some people had defective software versions a few years ago, and that is no longer an issue. I've owned a couple of HK components - and I'm very impressed with the quality. Haven't really had any issues (except a refurbed amp I had to exchange). What is the consensus on HK? Is it low-end, mid-grade or what? I only have a $500 budget to spend on the pre-amp (lots of other HT gear to buy), and this seems like by far the best value for my money. I also admit this is finally fulfilling my lust for this combo from when I saw it in stores for $3500 several years ago. Can anybody (esp. owners) give me a definitive answer as to whether this is a good pre/pro? I don't care about 6.1, and I have to admit the looks of the unit are a big selling point for me. I'd really like to get this matching unit, if it makes sense. Thanks!
