Looking over most amp/processor combos you can get a nice
set-up for $600. DD/DTS many inputs and a fair amp to boot.
A stand alone Preamp/Processor [DD/DTS ect] are $1500-$2500.
Are the quality parts "that" much better/expensive? Or is it the custom design that pushes the price up?
I would like to upgrade from a yamaha amp/DD/DTS combo that's 5 yrs old, but I need to see [or hear] what's the value. I do have a ATI 1805 amp. If you upgraded to a new combo or seperates please do tell.
If this is of any help, Yamaha AV-795, ATI 1805 amp, SVS PB2-ISD
