Christmas is round the corner & upgraditis has hit me ( like a lot of other forum members) - Santa needs to give me something :-)
My audio set up is mirage om-9/om-c2 ( LCR) being driven by Pioneer 82TXS . Sources are Oppo BDP & DirectTV HR21. Usage is 60/40 movies/music.
I am looking at Denon AVR-989/2809 ( you know, Pioneer doesn't do TrueHD,DTSMA etc plus I am attacted towards dolby volume functionality)
I am also looking at Emo XPA-3 . My room is 20x33 plus the whole kitchen at the back.
Now the catch is I have budget for only one of these. Which one gives the most bang ( read improvement) for the money - denon or emo?
