I really like the looks of the Marantz SR5006. For $499 it has all the options I was looking for. I have never purchased a refurb before, but I might just consider it.
I just hope the Marantz sounds just as good when hooked up to my Klipsch mains as the H/K does. I always thought the H/K was the best match for Klipsch speakers.
Im so glad this forum exists, I always get good info when trying to find something or when making a decision. Thanks again for the help!
