SoundAndVision.com just did an article on the upcoming AVR750
I'm relatively new, to the HiFi scene, and hadn't heard of Arcam. Sure, NAD and McIntosh are popular in some circle, I even have a NAD 3020 which I love, but it doesn't do surround sound.
So now I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-31, to power a deftech 8080 7.1 system. I'm thinking that the pioneer may be lacking in quality. Sure it sounds good, but the question always is, can it sound better?
1) Wound a high end receiver be worth the investment on a deftech 8080 system? The most demand is for the 5 mids and 2 tweeters. the subs are powered. So power is not a concern. I'm a lower volume guy as well.
2) Is the ArcamAVR600 worth the hype that soundsandvision give it? Is it worth $2500, which is a months worth of wages for me?
