Well Santa was kind and has brought me a SonyES 400 disc SACD player. Problem is my Acurus ACT3 Pre/Pro doesn't have multi channel inputs. So I'm thinking what great excuse to upgrade. Wife says I got $1500 to spend (gotta love her). So let me know what is out there, that offers Multi channel input, component video switching, six or seven channels of power (doesn't have to be high power, I use monitors and the room is only 11' x 17' and sealed). I am open to any suggestions. Thanks Greg PS The Acurus ACT3 is for sale for $500 including ground shipping. Also the A125X5 amp for $500.
