I have just ordered my first DVD player, a Panasonic CP72K. My current (out-of-date) system is as follows: Magnavox TP3272C TV, Profesionally Calibrated Mitsubishi U770 S-VHS VCR JVC single disc CD Player NAD 1600 Tuner/Pre-Amp Adcom GSP-560 Pro-Logic processor with 3-channel center/rear amps Parasound HCA-800II 90W/ch Amp for main speakers Adcom GFA 545II 100W/Ch Amp for subwoofer Celestion MP1 Ceiling mounted compact main speakers Celestion Centre2 center channel speaker Boston Voyager ceiling mounted rear speakers Self designed and built dual subwoofer At the time I bought them over 10 years ago, most components were highly regarded in one publication or another for entry level audiophile equipment. They were used frequently at the time, but rarely now for anything but kids movies. So, I'm looking for an inexpensive A/V option to replace one or more of the preamp/tuner/processor/amp functions I have. Something with a street price of about $400 would be about right. Given the infrequent use, the quality does not have to match the previous system. Compatibility with the current standards is more important. So, what are the best options for me? Should I somehow take advantage of the CP72K's built-in digital decoders? Is there an inexpensive processor with 3 integrated amps to replace only the GSP-560 so I can re-use my other amps and preamp/tuner? Should I just go for the simplicity of a receiver? I see some with reasonable street prices around $300-$350 like the JVC RX-8020VBK and Pioneer VSX-D811S. These seem to support most every current format and also have pre-outs in case it is desirable to use my existing amps instead of the built-in ones. Are these overkill? Can I get away with something less expensive given what I have already? If I can save money with a cheaper component, that would be ideal. I'm guessing even the entry level items are better than the Adcom Pro-Logic I have now... Any opinions appreciated.
