I was actually set to buy a 1014, but the deal fell through and while I was waiting i checked out audiogon... Basically i was gonna get a 1014 cause they're so cheap, but now I'm wondering if it isn't a compromise. I really wanna have top notch sound for music. There seem to be some B&K receivers floating around for a bit more than a new denon 3805. I don't know much about the brand though. Is B&K comparable to McIntosh? Hell, I'd even go with a 202 if it sounds really good.... I don't care too much about DPLII because I'm only going 5.1 anyway for the forseeable future and for music I intend on using stereo direct. For music, do you guys think it's worth saving up some extra money? The receiver will be paired with Paradigm Rerference Studio 40 v3. mains, the 470 center, and adp surrounds. My source for SACD/redbook/dvd-a is gonna be a Pioneer Elite 47Ai or a Denon 2900, depending on what i can get a deal on. Also, with regards to the B&K 505/507, what's the difference? On their website, they only list specs for the 505. Is the 507 just a 505 with a software update or something? I'm also wondering how consistent B&K is in offering upgrades to their receivers. Can anyone guess on the chance that they'll offer an upgrade on the 307 or 507 to DD+/DTS-HD when they are finalized and the new blu-ray/dvd-hd players start coming out?
