Hi all,

I've been doing a lot of research lately on getting a new receiver. I'm replacing an NAD T-753 that I've had for a good while. It's always had the audible hum that this series is known for, and it's just time for a change.

I'm looking for something to pair with my Klipsch Forte fronts and Klipsch RS-3 surrounds. A Klipsch reference center will soon follow. (I realize this is a Polk forum, but it appears many of your members have experience with Dared products) My listening priority is about 65% music and 35% home theater. I'll be using an Oppo BDP-103.

The Dared DV-6C looks interesting to me, although I've never owned tube equipment. http://www.dared.us/productimages/DV-6C_2.htm It's gotten good reviews, from what I've found, but I'd like to know if anyone here has real-life experience with it. I'll want something fairly quiet, as my speakers are pretty efficient (no repeats of the NAD T-753 hum please).
