After a long wait (5 months) on the waiting list, I know not as long as some, I went ahead a ordered the 950. I have been going back and forth on whether or not to by it. I have be using my trusty Denon ARV3300 for a pre-pro for the last 6 months and have been happy with it. I have heard some great things about the 950 and then some things that make me a little worried. Did I do the right thing in going for the 950? I guess I just need a vote of confidence that it was worth the $ and the trouble I'm going to be in from the boss.
