I did a lot of search here and other forums most of the recommendations/Requests are either budget restrained or basic or startup Amps or too heavy on wallet.
So i would like to see what you Audhiophile veterans have to recommend for the below spec.
Keeping the budget at max 3k or 4k and only considering new.
Not looking for a inexpensive atlernatives like Emotiva (no pun intended) etc., but if you have done A/B tests and you feel it is really good then lest list it here. We are looking for budget audiphile Pre Amp.
1) Best Avaiable DAC
2) Audiophile grade processing and SQ
Atleast 5 Hdmi inputs , 1 or 2 outputs
4)Top of the line room correction system
5)On screen display
6) Itunes app to control
8) 7.2 or more channels
9) 4K and 3D pass through
10) Build and Quality
Let me know if we are missing any key spec
Again this is just consolidate our opinions and thoughts.... Please lets not turn and twist this thread
