I Will add the pioneer sx-20 receiver, the N-30 does not have a Fm tuner. Or is vTuner a good alternative?
that wont be an upgrade to your rx-497(actually find it good enough) the A30 pioneer would sound smoother than yamaha. never heard the sx-20 but think wont be much different than the A30.
I say enjoy the system you have, the way I'm reading its delivering.........
thank you, your post is spot on!
On this moment i'm enjoying it....the reasons why im thinking about upgrading are the following.
1. the current pricecuts makes it tempting to upgrade
2. I would like to add streaming to my setup
3. If i spend money on new gear I would also like that the soundquality will be improved.
4. I like a hifi setup containing one brand/make only (beside the speakers)
My functional specification
Amplifier, FM radio, CD playback, streaming (web radio) enough inputs for TV/Wii/Bluray.
