Upgrading from x4200w, what to get?
I am looking to upgrade from my x4200w to something that can process 11.2 channels.
Speakers are all 95db sensitivity, so I think most avr will power them okay. Already have a xpa3 on the LCR.
My only must haves are 11 channel processing, I would like dual 12v trigger but it is not a deal breaker. No Yamaha, I had issues with pre outs on a couple previous to my x4200w and do not want to chance it again.
In the budget end of things, is XT32 the best option? Something like the x3600h? Or is the Pioneer or Onkyo/Integra options just as good?
If I stick with D&M, is the x3600h the best option without springing for the higher priced x6500h model? The x4500h looks almost like a step down from the x3600h.
