Hello to everyone. It has been a long time since I last posted here. I have been busy saving my pennies and waiting for the right time, and I finally have a matched speaker system! To go along with my Phase Tech Poweer 10 subwoofer, I purchased the Phase Tech Teatro 7.5 system (7.5 fronts, 6.5 center, and Teatro bipolar surrounds). My local high-end A/V dealer had a 50% off sale that I just could not pass up. The whole set for ~$600! I could not be happier with the purchase. They sound beautiful, even with my current piece of junk receiver. I am hearing things in songs I have listened to for years that I have never heard before and they make everything sound huge. Anyway, here is the question running through my head at the moment. A few months ago, I was all set to buy the Outlaw Audio 1050 receiver. Well, things did not go as planned and it has taken me this long to get the speakers. Now, I am back on the hunt for a new receiver. Recently, someone here posted something about some new Harman/Kardon receivers that should be released in the coming months. I never gave a thought to the H/K's until that post. I went looking around and read the specs and was quite impressed with what I saw (especially the AVR320). Here are my thoughts: Both have similar power ratings. Since I live in an apartment, I do not require megawatt amplifiers to power my speakers. The 1050 has 6 chanels of amplification built in. I have 2 speakers just waiting to be used as rear surrounds in a 6.1/7.1 setup. The H/K has Logic 7 (the new models will also include DPL II and DTS Neo:6). The Outlaw has no such provision. The new H/K has component video switching (this will be nice once I upgrade my TV). The H/K has front panel A/V inputs (I do actually make use of these quite often on my current receiver). The H/K also has 7.1 channel inputs and has 7.1 channel pre-amp outs (I can just hook up a stereo input on my current receiver to the rear surround out, right?). It does look like I am drooling all over the H/K, and I think I am. It looks to have all of the features I need now and will keep me content for the foreseeable future. However, and I do take this with a large grain of salt, I have visited AudioReview and it seems H/K does not place Quality Control as high on the priority list as does Outlaw. I also do not see H/K get mentioned too much here. Please let me know if I am reading too much into that. Anyway, of the Outlaw 1050 and the H/K AVR320 (basically an upgraded AVR310), which one would be a better receiver taking into account the reliability and longer-term enjoyment? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
