I have the same problem. My current processor is an Onkyo pr-sc 5508. I have a dedicated HT and the Onkyo is the only processor I heard playing in there. To me, it sounds good. But...I'm sure my HT can sound still better if I would upgrade the processor.
I was looking at the JBL SDP-40HD (lexicon 12hd) and the Marantz 8801. I'm looking for the best SQ possible. My Config is 7.1 so don't need extra channels and I'm using Klipsch THX Ultra 2 speakers.
What would be the best choice????
I am sure the JBL is a good sounding unit but, afaik, it lacks roomEQ. If this is an issue for you, the choice is easy.
