I have an older denon AVR that is acting up and decided it may be time to replace it. I was planning on getting another denon AVR and found a good deal on a 4311. In reading a bit on the forums, I am debating going with separates instead. If I do, i am leaning towards the emotiva UMC-200 and UPA-700. Someone I know recommend the Marantz MM7055 amp instead, but the emotiva seems to be a better value.
Here is what I have in the room:
TV: Sony 55hx929
AVR: Denon 3808
Hooked up via
Windows media center (TV and Blu-rays)
Triad Onwall mini LCR 3.0 (planning on upgrading this to much better triads in the next 6 months)
Triad InWall Silver/4 Surround (rears)
Triad inroom silver omni sub
Anyone have any tips or advice? I am not stuck going one way other the other. Basically the 4311 vs the emotiva would be about the same price. The emotiva would be slightly more, but the 25% off emotiva lifetime upgrade would be nice in the future.
