I know this question has been asked a zillion times, but I need some advice and direction as to where to go w/ a new receiver.


My current equipment is:


Marantz SR5200 - Preamp outputs only

Adcom GFA-555 II - Powering front left & right

Adcom GFA-2535 - Powering rear left & right/other two channels are bridged and are powering the center channel spkr

Front L & R: Snell E IIIs

Center: PSB 100C

Rears: PSB Alpha Minis

Sub: Velodyne VX-10


I don't listen to a lot of music, mostly movies. I have a new Sony 60A3000 TV w/ HDMI inputs, so it makes sense to get a receiver w/ HDMI. Since I don't use the receiver's amp, power isn't crucial to me. I would like to get a Blu-Ray player sometime soon.


Thanks!

So what's the point of buying a receiver if you only need a prepro ..other than paying for electricity turned into heat by the internal amps?

I'm not certain but I would imagine China or Malaysia/Taiwan at that pricing. American design/engineering though. I don't think QC issues plague this stuff like a lot of others from overseas...at least I don't get that from owners.
