Hmm, I was really looking foward to getting the 5509. I will start looking at the Integra 80.3 but it will be highly
unlikely I shell out over 2K for a preprocessor.
At the same time... I still don't think it will be a day & night difference going from Denon 4308CI to the Integra 80.3. I believe the most benefit would have been going to MultEQ XT32.
