A perfect AV Receiver to partner Monitor Audio Gold Surround system
I'm just in the process of researching a new AV receiver after my 4 year old Onkyo TX-NR905 has given up the ghost. It was a great receiver but I felt I got the partnership with the speakers wrong. For movies it was near perfect but for music it was too bright, especially with guitar rock at LOUD volumes. After the failure of the Onkyo (Overheating I think) I'm reluctant to go their way again. The Pioneer SC-LX75 or 85 models reviews look good, but all the advice is to stay away from pairing with Bright speakers.
Does anyone have experience of the GS60's and gold series or have any thoughts on an AV receiver which is suited to bright speakers. Budget £1k to £2k.
