Hello! I have read these forums for some time now and I would like to thank all that give great advice to budding home theater enthusiasts like myself. Recently I have been bitten by the upgrade bug, and junking my Sony and JBL stuff for some higher end equipment. I need just one main component before I can assemble the new system, that being the receiver. Let me tell you what I have now for a setup, Fronts (2) Paradigm Monitor 7's (1) CC-370 for the Center, (2) Mirage FX Parametric Rears and a 20-39PCi SVS Subwoofer. The ONLY thing I need to start reworking my setup is the receiver and I am down to two.. HK 525 or the Pioneer Elite VSX 45TX, and I am leaning toward the Pioneer for the Mic setup for a dummy like me =) Please chime in if you can.. I appreciate it.
