Hi Nelsun. I am replacing my B&K Ref 30 prepro from back in 2003. With component switching back then and no HDMI. I am almost a decade behind as well, however, there was always something BIG just around the corner so I have waited. First it was HDMI, then Lossless codecs, then the need for HDMI 1.4 for 3D. Finally all has come together for me with the Rotel RSP-1572. I almost went to the Integra DHC 80.3. I auditioned the Rotel RSP 1570 and loved it. I have a Blu Ray player with two outputs so one goes direct to TV monitor and other to Rotel. That way I can watch/listen on TV speakers or if I want to crank I will go through Rotel. Same with my Time warner cable box, Component direct to TV and HDMI to Rotel for same reason to NOT always need to run prepro for news or mundane viewing. You cannot believe how many cables I removed from older prepro. My 2 cents.
