Having "upgraded" from an HK to the Sony STR-DN860 a few years ago, I'd suggest having a listen before you pull the trigger. I'm not in the "all amps sound the same" camp and was pretty underwhelmed...

Out of curiosity - how do the 1500s compare to the HTPS-400? That ebay repair service still hasn't returned from vacation, so I'm still without mine. Honestly, I'm only...
