Well...can't say that I'm responsible for inspiration often. hahaha
Seriously, though...truly flattering, thanks.
I haven't done much critical listening, nor any A/B comparison with my Onkyo. I can tell you that I have zero complaints, that's for sure. Clarity is amazing. But again...the 876 is kind of a beast, so I don't know that I improved it a ton.
I've only really watched TV on it so far. Hope to get in a movie or two this weekend to really put it to the test.
Buying this was more of a "too good of a deal to pass up" scenario than an "I need more power for this room" one. I hope to be in a bigger place in the next year, as well as throw some 6-series up front, so this was going to be an eventual "get" anyway.
