I have a 5.2 set up (B&W 683 Home theater set up) and use a mini DSP/REW to tame the dual subs. I have always had Denon receivers (2200, 3300, now the x4000).
It annoys me that if I want to upgrade to 4k I have to spend a grand on upgrading the receiver (xt32).
I have ordered the Nano AVR DL and am going to substitue the XT32 with Dirac Live.
I have tested it and prefer it.
If I add a i.e. Rotel RMB 1555 to drive the 5 speakers, is it correct to assume that I could just buy cheap Denon receivers to decode the Blu rays, pass through 4k etc?
I am willing to spend more up front to avoid always having to buy big Denon receivers. If I don't need the power or the room correction, is it reasonable to assume this?
This would at least save me having to always buy a top of the line Denon just for 4k, 8k upgrages, etc?
Aah, hopefully it will work well but the Denons dont start with pre outs until the 3x00 series so the cheap ones cant use external amps or will you use the nanoavr after the AVR and use the nanoavr as a pre-amplifier with volume control?
(Asking a lot of questions, mostly because im curious about dirac live options)
