I promise this is my last thread on receiver buying advice. I've narrowed down my choice to the above three and need some help in finalising my decision. The price points are relatively close All prices are for refurbed models from the HK website 325 - $330 330 - $390 525 - $430 I am also going to be buying a Pioneer 563 Universal Player. That fact is important because of bass management consideration when choosing a receiver. I plan on running my Energy Take 5.1 System with the new receiver. Sometime this year I will upgrade my fronts and add an outboard amp to drive them. So the amplification doesn't need to be top notch. More important are the pre pro aspect becuase I plan on upgrading my pre pro last - at least 2 years away. Keeping my reqs in mind, what do you recomend. The main reason for this thread - and yes I have read ALL the other HK threads- is to see if there are any problems with the receivers I have in mind. I think the only thing the 330 adds over the 325 is the new color scheme and a few more watts per channel. Am I making the right decision in choosing one of these models or is there another model - 430 or 630 - that I should be looking at. Thanks for your advise!
