I currently have an Onkyo 898 driving my Def Tech speakers (2004tl's, CLR 2500, BP2X's) and wanted to begin my migration to separates with an amp or two. I've been drawn to the Odyssey Stratos (3+2), but have also read good things about McCormack, or perhaps even the Sim Audio Moon (a bit more, but worth it?). HT is my main interest, but music is important too. I'm looking to spend $2,500 - $3,500 on a 5.1 (7.1 later). I'm willing to spend more if it takes me to another demension, so to speak, but if not, I'd like to keep it around there.
