    Luke I suggest you do a search for Nuance on the forum but I'm afraid you're not going to like what you find. IMO You'd be further ahead with different speakers then a different receiver.

    Luke I see from your other thread that you spent $1600 so using that as a budget you've got quite a wide variety to choose from. Given that you're in Canada you're going to get the most bang for your buck buying a Canadian brand so I'd suggest you audition Energy, Mirage, PSB, Paradigm, Totem, Athena, and Axiom. Paradigm make a great product that has a wide variety of models to choose from. Note that you will likely end up with 5-6 bookshelf sized speakers plus a subwoofer with that price range which will give you a much better sounding setup then what the nuance could ever do...that said the nuance might play louder (until it dies) but quantity doesn't equal quality[​IMG] Would you be willing to assemble your own speakers or subwoofer? If so that would be one way to stretch your budget a long way. For example there's a company in BC selling a subwoofer kit for $400 cdn that would easily beat most of the comercial units costing much more.
