and the H/K 525? I've found them all for around the same price online (the H/K for a little less than the others), but I'm not sure which to go with. They all seem to have similar features, including line outs so they could be used as a pre/pro later on. I like the auto calibration on the Elite, as it's supposed to be very good and very accurate. I've always been impressed with Denon's quality, and a lot of people around here have had very good things to say about H/K. I guess I'm looking for informed comments about these components, and opinions on which you would buy right now if you were on the market. Thanks for your help.
