    I want to upgrade my reciever but am a little leary as to what to buy.
    Should I upgrade my JVC 6020 to the JVC 8030, or go to another brand all together?
    I like the sub crossover features of current reciever, so I would like to retain that feature...
    Here are the other brands I am considering, all are within my budget:
    Kenwood 7060
    Yamaha 5660
    Denon 1603
    H/K 125 (don't think it has a sub x-over:could not find it anyways on spec sheet but I like the reviews H/K get)

    Well I listened to alot of brands before I finally decided to get my HK 225. It has a more neutral sound and also uses a high current amp. As for the crossover i'm not sure...

    All receivers have a sub crossover. Some have more options than others, but all receivers have something.

    I had a JVC 60 something, and I upgraded to a Denon 3803. The Denon is much more detailed and smooth. I don't think you would gain anything with JVC unless you move up to the THX certified receivers, which are out of your price range. At the lower prices Denon, H/K, and Marantz just have better amps.

    I have the JVC RX-7030 couldn't be happier. I don't think there's anything that can touch the RX-7030 or RX-8030VBK in that price range. Both recievers are high currant, and have discrete amplifiers for each channel. I compared SONY, ONKYO, PIONEER, YAMAHA, and none of them could match-up to the features or proformance of the JVC in that price range[​IMG]

    While that is true, not all receivers offer you the ability to adjust the crossover point for the sub.

    In regards to JVC, I've had a good experience with an 8000VBK a few years back. I'd probably still own it if it had Pro Logic II - but, it didn't.

    Does anybody own the JVC 8020 or the 8030 that can give shopping comparisons? Maybe the 8030 is what I need in regards to power and features.

    Please,for goodness sake audition a good unit,I owned a 1k jvc,very disapointing(sound wise).That was the end of a 15 year jvc love affair.Everything I had was jvc(up to mid 90's)when I thought I would try something different.I started with Kenwood then Pioneer then Onkyo then HK then gave up on CC and BB and went to a real audio store.When I heard the Denon 3802 my search was over.The point is try em'all in your price range (I auditioned at home)you never know what you are missing till you do.

    I did some homework before getting the RX-7030 there are only a few differences from the RX-8030 maybe I can help answer your questions.
