Music aside, who does the best for HT sound for around $1500 (Reciever or Pre/pro)? Is it pretty much the same across the board for HT sound at this price?
Is it pretty much the same across the board for HT sound at this price?No, not in my opinion. If you surf through this forum, you will find vigorous debate over the sonic merits of receivers and pre-pros up to and including the Lexicon MC-12 (which I own... about $10K), the Theta Casablanca (up to $20K depending on options) and the Mark Levinson 40 (about $30K).
With that said, the benefits of such gear will only be realized if you have commensurate sources, power amps, speakers, and a properly designed/treated room.
