As big as this forum is I'm sure this has been discussed multiple times but, at the risk of being directed to an older thread, I'm going to ask again. What is the general opinion on high end (or higher end) receivers vs entry level separates? For the same money that I spent on the CA 751r receiver, I could have bought a Marantz AV7701 pre and a MM7055 5ch amp. Crutchfield is even offering half off of an additional 2ch amp ($400) if you buy all three together. It was real tempting, but I chose the receiver. I have always wanted separates and in a way kind of regret not trying them, but I'm a believer in the saying that you get what you pay for. The CA receiver is a really nice piece of equiptment. I know nothing of Marantz but can only imagine that the entry level stuff is not built with the same standards as there higher end line of separates. I need something to last a long time. What chall think?
