I'm in the market for a new receiver and its come down to these two receivers primarily. Only other one I was considering is the VSX-03 if there isn't enough of a difference in features/power,etc.
My current setup is:
Cerwin Vega LS12's (L/R)
Definitive CLR2002 (Center)
Klipsch XB10's (Rears)
Klipsch XW300D (Sub)
Sharp BD20u Blu Ray
Toshiba HD20 HD DVD
Scientific Atlantic Cable Box
I am more than likely upgrading my Television to the Pro111fd and the front's to either XF48's or Martin Logan Purity's within the next year as well.
Looking like 4-5 HDMI devices here as well so I'll have to downgrade at least one to Component or run HDMI straight to the TV and back down to the receiver since I believe both feature 4 HDMI ins?
I'm concerned with power/amperage(sp?) in the unit as well since at current it seems like a good portion of my dialog gets washed out since the CLR2002 is on the floor due to its size.
Suggestions, Advice, Considerations would be appreciated, thanks.
Oh, price isn't a consideration here either, just want the best for my setup
