Okay... so I started looking for TOTAL system
It may be possible if you stick with a receiver for a pre/pro and look into used amps. You should be able to get that HK320 w/ a Parasound 855a 5 channel amp for around $1000.
Alas, I am too chicken to go with used...
...any specific new combos to suggest, anybody...?
actually the parasound 855 suggestion was for new, i see them all the time on ebay for $500 if you are comfortable purchasing online.
If you want more power for that price though i think you will definitely have to go used.
seems pretty hard to get a 5 channel amp and a pre/pro for less than a grand new. Also don't forget to add the price of interconnects times 5.
Steve & Karen,
You talking 5.1?
A couple months ago I lucked out and got my Sherwood Newcastle combo for under $800, both new in box. One from Ubid one from Ebay. I frickin' love them. I think there may be deals out there to be had.
And some advice: don't be afraid to get used equipment at this level. No-one who's willing to go to the trouble of separates is going to abuse them. Just MHO though...
thanks Phil (Sherwood Newcastle)... any other opinions/suggestions for specific combos of separates for
Oulaw 1050 Receiver $500 (for 5.1 DD and DTS - new)
Parasound HCA-855a ($400-500 - used)
Just an example (it's what I am using right now)
