I'm thinking of upgrading my entry-level Yamaha receiver. It works fine, but at higher volume levels the sound is a bit harsh. I'm basically looking for something with very clean sound, I'm not very interested in lots of other features. I went to the home theater store here locally, and was interested in the following models: Pioneer Elite VSX-36TX $999 Pioneer Elite VSX-41TX $599 Denon AVR-3802 $999 I also looked at the Outlaw 1050 on the web, and was wondering if that one is in the same league as these others. The salesman told me that the 36TX has Burr&Brown DACs whereas the other two do not. I've heard that these are very good DACs, but I don't know how much impact that has on the sound. Can someone tell me the pro's and con's for these models, or suggest something else in the same price range?
