Well, "upgraditis" is hitting me again and I'm ready to make the move to separates. Just sold my B&K AVR307 receiver and am now looking for a pre/pro. Anyway my choices are either the B&K Ref 30 (~$2300) or the Theta Casa Nova ($3800 w/DD,DTS,video switching). Since I'm already familar with the B&K features, does anyone here have experience with the Theta and comparing the two? Is the Theta worth the extra 1500 bones? In particular, info such as sound, upgradability, features, reliability, customer service, etc. would be appreciated. I'm a 80% music/20% movie person. Anyway, I'll be mating it with a B&K Ref 2220 stereo amp (was using it as an outboard amp in my old setup for the mains) and a to be determined 5-channel amp (Parasound, Sunfire, B&K are my top choices). My setup includes: M&K S-1C mains M&K S-125 center and surrounds SVS 20-39PC sub Sony DVP-9000ES B&K Ref 2220 stereo amp BEL "the wire" interconnect (pre to amp for mains) Monster M950i interconnects (everything else) 12-gauge speaker wire from Home Depot Tara Labs D-1 digital coaxial Sony 36" XBR250 WEGA Thanks! ------------------ "I not giving her the shot - you give her the shot!"
