I have been a huge Klipsch fan since the 70's. I have traditionally preferred the classical line (Heresey, LaScala, Bell, K-Horns, etc.) though I think some of the current stuff also sound good - especially the reference line. My questions pertains to the electronic side of the equation I have had HK and loved it, Yamaha and hated it, and now need to decide on new stereo and home theater gear. I have looked back at HK and the build quality and heat issues appear suspect. I have looked at Yamaha, but they once again appear bright and the slew rates are not as good. I looked at Marantz and find electronic failures as well as heat issues much like the HK's. I do not know much about Onkyo but the reviews I read appear favorable. Can anyone comment on Onkyo, or for that matter, any of the above manufacturers and offer some honest advice? Shops just want to sell what they own, and continue to talk down anything that they don't. I am seeking the best match for Klipsch that will take maxium advantage of the speaker and offer that full, rich sound that envelopes the soundstage. Thanks for anyone's comments!
