So I am considering upgrading my receiver to power the following setup.
Paradigm Studio 60 mains.
Klipsch wc-24 Center (an eventual upgrade target but need new AV cabinet first)
and Quintet IIs for surrounds.
I am not really in need of any features, however I am very interested in moving to a receiver with pre outs. The thought being that I could eventually combine with a 2-3 channel amp to power the mains and perhaps the center.
That is further down the road though.
Right now I just want to know whether the upgrade is worth considering (assuming I never use the preouts).
Will there be a discernible difference in audio quality? How much of a difference will the 20 extra watts per channel make?
thanks in advance
