Kevin. W and Blkout,
Yes, I bet the 56txi sounds sensational with Paridign's. It's one of the brands on my short list that I would love to hear on the Studio speakers!
However, my local authorized dealer wants $1500 for the Elite.
My original budget for a receiver was $1000.
Recently I had the opportunity to hear a Rotel RSX-1067 on some Klipsch Reference speakers. What a difference the Rotel made!!
We went from listening to a Yamaha 2500 to the Rotel.
I could get the Rotel for about $400 more than the 56txi.
If I am going to break the budget, by $500 bucks for the 56txi, I figure I might as well get the Rotel.
Did you guys get the 56txi for $1000 from an on-line dealer or a local authorized one?
