I Guess I had posted on the wrong section of this forum, got no responses or no one has had any experiences with this receiver. Pardon, me if this is the wrong approach. Here is my repost:
I have a dilemma again... I have a very decent pair of SDA 1c that have been upgraded slowly. I started with spikes, then Dynamat the baskets, and pretty soon rdo-194. I am going the rdo-194, because I don't want to get too crazy on the upgrade, crossover and rdo-198 are beyond my means of ability.
As far as power goes I started with my older Adcom gfa-545ii, and they sounded great, but lacking fullness, depth... Then I got a Conrad Jonson CA-200 integrated, the sounded fuller, but something was missing on the low end, too much mids kinda, and the highs were too in your face...I then got a gfa-5500, and now my depth, and lows were very full, but once again too much mids.... all of the above have been via a gfp-450(adcom), with the exception of the Conrad Johnson CA200, which I ran on its own, and via the gfp-450. I seem to be happier with the gfa-5500.
Now my dilemma: I have an option to get a sunfire ultimate receiver at a decent price. Taking all of the above, and the polks sda-1c that I love, anyone have any experiences driving the 1c with the sunfire ultimate receiver? Will it be worth my troubles? Any other input would be appreciated. Thanks, Carlos
