Need a new AV Amplifier
Thanks to Frank Harvey I am now the proud owner of some RX6s.
I will be adding a RXLCR and R90HDs (for rears) and an active sub later.
The only speakers connected to my new AV amplifier will be the RXLCR and R90HDs. This is because the RX6s will be 'pre-outed' to my stereo amp and obviously the active sub will have own amplification.
So this leads me to a slimline AV amplifier (would this seem reasonable?) with a lower power output but with performance the speakers deserve. I can only see the Marantz 1403 and 1603 that have the front channel pre-outs. Questions are:
Are these slimline AV amplifiers good enough?
Are there any other slimlines out there (with pre-outs)?
Why are there a lack of reviews for these products?
I have a yamaha dspax763 - are the slimlines better?
I want 3d but not fussed about network functions so the 1403 seems the one for me.
