So I'm surrounded to the best that this room allows by PolkAudio's TSi line.The bug has bit me and now I'm looking at AVR's and Amps.
Now every time I think that I have made my mind up, it gets switched again. I just had my mind set on the Marantz SR6006 from Accessories4less based on all the recommendations here on the seller. Loving the AirPlay, style, and convenience of the Party mode. This is coming off the Onkyo TX-NR818 and TX-NR809. I was so set on the 818 that I even purchased a usb->3.5mm adapter to use as an amp trigger. Now Amazon has open box 809 units for under $375... This is so tempting since I have an AppleTV unit that I could use (not thrilled with it though, keeps dropping out when AirPlaying audio). Ahh... but I can get a longer aftermarket warranty from acc4less.
Obviously at the price point that I am looking at, my options are limited - but apparently not limited enough. You guys have created a monster.
