    originally my system budget was under a $1k to get speakers and a receiver. its grown in the past couple of weeks for reasons i cant explain. so i have a klipsch klf-c7 center, forte main speakers and kef c40s or polk monitor series 4 for rears. i will also eventually get a svs pb10 for a sub.

    just bought a nakamichi pa-1 5-channel power amplifier and dont know which preamp would go good with it. obviously i could get a ca-1 but i cant find it anywhere for sale currently.

    i need some recommendations for the preamp for under $600, new or used.

    Have you looked at Outlaw for a Processor?

    Wow, your system sure has changed over the last couple of weeks! :)

    Is your friends Rotel RSX-1056 still available? That would make a nice pre/pro for $700 (talk them down to $600!).

    The Yamaha RX-V2500 is also a good choice, solid unit.

    Am I to guess that HDMI is no longer a requirement for you? :)

    with the different versions of HDMI, i think i should wait a few years before things settle down and all manufacturers have a standard to follow, so for now, no, HDMI is not a necessity.

    the rotel 1056 was sold. he wouldnt budge from 700 anyways.

    i did think about the outlaw, its a lil out of my budget though.

    Not a bad choice, on-board processors seem to perform well on most receivers.
