I'm considering going in the direction of a seperate HT pre-amp to replace my NAD as I believe it may be FUBAR'ed and I don't necessarily want to replace my AVR with a new one that will at some point become obsolete. I am very happy with the NAD performance and sound, particuarly musicality.
Any suggestions on options for a great, dedicated, 5.1 pre/pro at least on par with NAD and worthy of mating with my Anthem amps? I am open to new or used in the $1000-1500 or less range and would like the ability to update as well. Not sure where my budget might fall, but Panamax should cover my claim for replacement of my T-773, which should be at least $1,000. Thx.
