    Hey Guys,

    I was just wondering some thoughts on this receiver...will it be a good match for paradigm monitor line? does it really put out 100W x 7? My other choice for receiver would be an HK? Which is better IYO? i have heard the HK but not the pioneer, but that will change soon...so i can't compare there, yet...

    Thanks for the comments,
    Mike

    H/K is in a transitional phase: the x25s are on the way out and the new x30s are on the way in. You might be well advised to see what the x30s are like when they are released, although you can probably get some amazing deals on the x25s now as they get cleared out.

    I own an H/K 225 and the Elite 53TX, and I'm extremely happy with both. You'd really have to listen to them and compare for yourself. I don't know which H/K you're aiming towards, but it's probably the 525 or 7200 in the price range of the 55txi. Will your dealer let you test it in your own home environment? I've been offered a floor model to take home for a weekend to try it out at one dealer.

    In any case, you'll find happy owners of both on this forum.
