Currently have an Outlaw 990 and Emotiva LPA-1 paired with Paradigm Studio v3 system. Recently upgraded TV and now HDMI is an option for me. Wondering which current AVRs could be used as a pre-pro and be considered an upgrade in terms of quality over the Outlaw. I do run cable box and BluRay through the Outlaw vi component. Looking to stay under 1k. I don't really care about networking functionality, etc, so its really just a matter of video and sound quality at this point. Thanks much.
