So it happened that I bought legendary Yamaha NS-1000m speakers along with Luxman power amplifier to drive them and thus my setup skyrocketed from market-hifi to high-end.
Until now, I've been using Denon 2310 AV-Receiver as preprocessor for the luxman for listening purposes and denon as amplifier for rear speakers in HT-stuff. I just bought another Luxman power amplifier and Yamaha NS-500 speaker for the rear channels. So I have no need to AV-receiver at all, only AV-pre processor.
Now I have read some interesting stuff: "Market" hifi-receivers do NOT have "genuine" pre-outs. AFAIK
this means that pre-outs are just main outs with resistor. This is not good. Also I really would like to upgrade from Audyssey multieq to XT32.
So could you please recommend me a good pre-processor or receiver with would function as pre-processor in my setup. With:
- hifi - high end sound quality, separate circuitry for audio would be good
- Aydyssey multieq XT32
- genuine pre-outs.
- only 1 HDMI out is needed, no need for 1.4
- affordable price ~ 1000$ as used.
Denon? Arcam? NAD? Marantz?
