Maybe this has been done before... (it would be nice if there was an option to create a poll of features that automatically updates itself... )anyway... It appears we all have been destined to sit back and wait to see what "features" are being released on the next latest and greatest offering(s) from various manufacturers. Once released, the pre/pro OR receiver is scrutinized. The upsides and detriments to the unit are reviewed. There's always a little surprise expressed regarding the omission of xxxx. So, I suggest we have at 'er. Start listing the features that are "Must Haves" and "Nice to Haves" for YOU to consider giving the offering a serious look. I will leave it open with regards to power on the receivers. Here is an example of just a couple of priorities in my search: Must Have: -Logic 7 -Bass Management (anyone... plz!) -DD-EX -DPL II -Assignable Outputs when adding an Amp -Firewire or other software upgradeability system -Ease of sound configuration / Automated Balance based on personal preferences between differing processing modes (e.g. no Bass Drop off) Nice to Have: -THX Ultra 2 -Dual Zone -Remote Control Sold Separately (maybe I have a Pronto already) -Black Power Button Manu. Reps, your input is appreciated.
