I think any receiver that has digital input can serve your need. It doesn't have to be PWM/class D/digital amp. Class A/B (analog) Amp converts digital signal to analog before amplifies it. Class D (digital/PWM) amp amplifies digital signal without conversion. Anyone can correct me.
I don't have much money to own very expensive euipments like your guys and have no golden ears to tell which one is better.
I am thinking of buying Pana XR57.
How does this compare to HK DPR 2005, and the other PWM amps?
Biology is very different from EE in coursework structure. In EE, we don't do much of blind test bcoz it still have bias from the people who take the test. We try to do tests without human bias as much as possible. I have BS in EE, MS in Eng Mgt, PhD in IE, and used to lecture some EE class, so I know something about EE.

So if both the XR55/57 and VRS-7100 have TAS5076 for processor and TAS5182 for controller, they have the same sound quality?
My only purpose for the receiver is to take digital signal and play music on a pair of speakers.
