So I have my OPPO-93 on the way.

I need help, please.

Right now I have a NAD-773 which has no HDMI.

What would be a good option in a new under $800 receiver that puts out good power? Or maybe a component setup. Would I be better off with an older model? The chip is pretty good in the OPPO so I really need something for the power and HDMI right? Any ideas from you pro's would really help. Things have gone past my knowledge level.

Present setup:

I have a NAD 773 receiver right now.

Von Schweikert VR 2 mains

Von Schweikert LCR 15 center

Velodyne F-1500 sub

4 in wall surrounds

I would like to stay below 1K, well below if I can.

Well, if you were happy with the power of the 773, you might

consider using it as an amp for the new processor as it does have removable jumpers for the pre-out/amp-in sections. This could help you save $ when considering a newer but less powerful avr. Just make sure the new model has pre-outs.

The simple fact is that for $800 you will not be able to get the amp power you are looking for. I agree that you should get a new receiver with pre amp outputs and use the NAD amps that you have.


Short list for you to evaluate :

Marantz SR5005

Pioneer VSX-1120

Onkyo TSX-SR708

Is the umc-1 a decent preamp? Can anyone comment on weather it would be a good choice with my setup?
