Thank you for being honest.
BTW the list price of the 8100 is being compared to the lowest street price of the 7100. Another little bias of this thread!
I may be 2 channel hi rez biased, but never brand biased.
I own two Pannys, a JVC RX-10, and a Kenwood 7100, tried a HK dpr 2005, and stuck up for a Sony reciver based on word of mouth reveiws of late.
Yep...I am real biased
This is avs forum....not " As The Digital Receiver Turns." forum.
As I said before, I could happily live with any of these, if I had not directly compared them.
Analog ins were compared as
1 JVC RX-10
2 A very close second was the Kenwood 7100
3 Not even in the running was the Pany 45...which imo, has terrible analog ins.
Not liking multi channel gimmickey unatural sound effects that are present on a lot of hi rez recordings, does not make me biased
It is just my opinion, and as always, use your own judgement....not mine.
As far as the 8100, it has already been mentioned if you bothered to read the thread, and yes it has already been pointed out that they are the same sonically and power wise.
If you think my opinions are biased, perhaps you can spend a bunch of your own hard earned money, and do your own comparisons.
