Well I swapped out my Anthem D1, SVS AS-EQ1 & DVDO VP50 for an Integra DHC 80.3. Set everything up this morning an it's all working beautifully.
My only issue is that I appear to be a couple of inputs short. One is for my turntable, I use an external preamp so I can't use the phono input and am using the CD input for my Squeezebox touch. The other is my Escient/CD Changer which to be honest I don't use much anymore since I rip all my CDs to FLAC & play them back through the Squeezbox. Any thoughts on how to hook up the turntable would be appreciated.
Initial impressions are very good. I was really worried about the audio performance for music, but initial listening has allayed those fears. Movie performance appears to be better than the Anthem, more involvement from the surrounds and vocals seem to be clearer.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
