So, after much much researching I have decided I must suck it up and get an avr.
I am going to be using the pre-out to run to an amp to run 2 subs using bass management. The main purpose is music, iPod and vinyl. I probably won't even use the digital hdmi or optical connections. I'm fine with virtual Dolby prologic or whatever it is.
So between the pioneer 822k, marantz 1402 or Yamaha Rxv471 which one am I best off with?
You're not cultured. You're stupid.
