Ok, I talked to the GF, and we (she) decided that I shouldn't (can't) spend more than $2.5-3K CDN on a pre-pro, and I decided that I'm gonna go with a new unit (not used). The Rotel and the Sherbourn are the only two that fit into my budjet, so I'm going to get one of them. I've listened to both of the units quite extensively, and have decided that both would be worthy of contolling my home theater. I'm not tremendously interested in subjective "sound characteristic" opinions, but I would love to see some objective information on these two units. If anyone has this info, it would be greatly appreciated because if one of them has significantly better #'s than the other, I won't have such a hard time making up my mind. BTW, I know about all of the problems/bugs of both of the units, and have unfortunately conceeded that they are acceptable at this price range.
