Upgrading from Yamaha RX-V2700 too...?
I'm in the middle of the rabbit hole and looking for some advice. I'm updating my LCR to DIYSG Maximus-12LXE (IIRC 95-97 efficiency) and Volt 10 V-2 surrounds. Also putting together two B&C 21" subs in GSG boxes.
I'm wanting to update my AVR to get some connectivity....Apple, Bluetooth, etc. The Yamaha RX-V2700 is pretty robust but its 11 years old and pretty clunky to operate.
I'm debating on getting a newer AVR as a preamp and surround duty, and a 3 channel amp to run the LCR. Or...just spend more on an AVR and keep it simple.
I'm probably 75% music so I'm very interested in driving the L/R well. The more I read the less I seem to be able to come to a conclusion. Budget is reasonable...up to 1500-2000 for either a really good AVR or a mid-level AVR and a 3 channel amp. Suggestions?
