Cambridge Audio CXR 200
I have a 7.1 set-up consisting of Monitor Audio Gold 300, C350, Gold FX (x2) and Gold W15. I am currently after a new amp. My current amp is a CA 640R connected to 3 power amps (Denon POA s10) to power up the fronts speakers.
I am fully aware of the new codecs (Atmos, DTS X etc) in fact I was considering either the Marantz SR 7010 or Yamaha 3050. I was also considering the Marantz 7702 MKII or the Yamaha CXA 5100, but need to wait if I will go for the latter.
I am writing this thread for some assistance. A friend of mine has a practically brand new Cambridge Audio CXR 200, (only 2 months old) that he needs to sell due to unforeseen circumstances. He offered to sell it to me for 1200 Euros at the moment and I am quite tempted. I know that I will be sacrificing a lot of specs compared to the AVRs I was considering which some of them cost twice the price but on the other hand it is a very good sounding amp, (very authoritative and puts you at the centre). I also will not be using one of my power amps since it has only 2 pre outs. Your help will be much appreciated in this matter. Thanks
