I was going to go with a Denon 3802, Marantz 7200, or NAD T761 but some guy I met said I should find separates for around a grand,(what I want to spend.) If I go sepearates I may go used, they seem to have good warranties. Are recievers that much inferior? I'll be using dreamcasters, or axioms, or aperions or other speakers in that quality range. I'll have to do some serious homework...the good kind. Much appreciate your assistance.
