I want to spend 2000-2500 on either a good receiver or low-end seperates. I am currently using a Sony 4ES. I have been reading all of the threads here on this since it has been debated a lot. However, I would like to hear your opinions on the current crop of equipment. I am considering the following receivers, Sunfire Ultimate, B&K 305, 307, 505, 507, Rotel 1055, 1065, NAD 773 and the following seperates, Outlaw and Rotel. Are there any other seperates in this price range. I am willing to buy used. My sources are a Bravo D1 and a Cambridge D500SE. Speakers are Mirage Omnisats and a SVS Ulltra powered by a Samson S1000. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

The new Sherwood Newcastle P-965 ($1,500 MSRP) and its matching amp ($1,999 MSRP) are due out in February and you should be able to get the two together for about $3,000 total. Go to www.sherwoodusa.com to read about them. There is also a thread in this forum that gives some opinions.


And I just read about the new Harman/Kardon AVR7300 ($2,200 MSRP) that sounds very interesting - a true 110 watts X 7 plus the Faroudja DCDi video upsampler that converts all incoming video to 480P. Here is a link:

The link also includes info on their new digital-amp receivers - DPR2005 and DPR1005 that look interesting.


Not sure when any of the new H/K receivers are due out. You should also do a search of this forum to get comments on the units you list.
