AVR + AMP |Vs| Seperates, Pros/Cons
My question of the day is what are the Pros/Cons to going with a AVR + AMP vs. just getting separates? The idea being that I can get a AVR to start with to power my speakers at somewhere 50-100w for awhile and to save up for a AMP and later using the PreOuts on the AVR to have the dedicated AMP drive the speakers at 100-200w.
Or is there a large enough quality difference if I just get a AV Preamp/Processor and AMP and skip a AVR all together.
I'm thinking of a 5.2.2-4 or 7.2.2-4 and i've been looking at the Denon AVRs for price, Marantz AVRs for its HDAM module, and a Marantz AV7705, and a Monolith AMP for any of the solutions I go for.
