I'm currently in the market for a new receiver. I want a good mid to high end unit but I'm limited to around $1500.00 (street) max. I've been looking at the Sherwood Newcastle R-963 for several reasons. First off, it's the only receiver in this price range that I've seen that has both 192/24 DAC's and full bass management for all 8 channels which would be a nice match for my Pioneer DV-47A player. This would save me money by not having to buy something like the Outlaw ICBM. Does anyone here have this receiver or familiarity with it so as to provide pros and cons of it. Any other recommendations for other similar receivers in this price range.
