I'd also check out Emotiva. I got a UPA-7 to drive my front 3 channels, plus both zones on my X-4000. I'm very happy with it, has lots of grunt, and runs cool.

TBH, it could sound better than the NAD, but I wasn't able to do a side by side comparison since I let the smoke out of the NAD before I got the Denon. For plain stereo, I actually preferred my...

Streaming for casual watching, like TV series and cheesy so-bad-it's-good fun movies (Sharknado, FTW!) Blu-Ray for the blockbusters, and timeless classics (i.e. "2001"), or perennial favourites.

I recommend walking into your local store and seeing if they have any floor models. I did this with a X4000 last week, got it for $650. No box or remote, but full warranty on the AVR itself.
