AV- Panasonic VT30¦Pioneer LX85¦MA Apex Speakers¦Antimode 8033S¦OPPO 95 BDP

Hi-Fi- Spendor A3¦Cyrus 8 XPD QX¦Quad 909 power amp

RE: AV receivers

If available, Pioneer should be on your list (SCLX 75).

As to which....that's hard to advise without knowing your taste in music and the type of sound you like.

Out of your list, and without being familiar with your speakers - the Marantz - but that's a shot in the dark.

RE: AV receivers

At that price level, a demo is in order - is that possible?

I am the danger.

RE: AV receivers

First of all I want to say thanks to all responded to the topic. Pioneer is not suitable, because he is not playing .flac

I listen to all music styles. Music fan, but like most dance music or heavy, in general, one that sounds with drive.


By price range I am guided by the same prices as above devices
