Hey Guys,


I have a NAD M15 at the moment, upgraded to that from the Rotel RSP-1066. I pretty much am only into HT and hence listen to music once in a blue moon. I use a DVDO VP50 with my NAD and pretty much these days find that most of the inputs all go into my DVDO and then only have a couple of things going directly to my NAD. I came across a decent price 2nd hand for a Integra DHC 9.9 and was wondering if i should upgrade to it.


The only issue I had was I am not sure its a step up or a step sideways or even a step down from the M15. The Integra seems to have sooo many cool features and has video upscaling, audyssey stuff..2 hdmi outputs etc etc. But as far as brands go i still think of Integras as possibly being a lower end brand than the NAD. Probably a similar to a Rotel or lower end than that too... Yet i hear so many people talk about the Integras extremely highly. My first amp was a Onkyo 919 SV919THX, I loved that amp and it was a great performer especially for the build quality and features. But i do know that sound wise my rotel outperformed it.


Anyway I suppose if i dont take up the 2nd hand integra 9.9 (i generally only buy 2nd hand since i cant afford brand new prices for the range i am keen on) then the other route i was thinking was something like a audio processor only since the DVDO can do most of the video side of things. Like i have heard of the Cary systems that sound intriguing, or maybe even upgrade my video upscaler and get both the Cary products....?

No input? I was looking at that shootout that was done by steve on the forums. Interesting, the Integra did not do as well as some of the other equipment but i think that was for 2 ch, i am mainly into HT and hence digital signals only.
