Thanks for the link, Sal.Something like this,
As it stands the RZ50's amps exhibited some serious issues when attempting to drive 4 ohm loads but if your speakers are closer to 8 ohm loads it should offer acceptable performance at this price level. The Dirac Live DSP is a big plus here.This is a review and detailed measurements of the Onkyo TX-RZ50 9.2 8K THX Certified AV Receiver. It was purchased new by a member and drop shipped to me for testing. It costs US $1,399. Looks like all AVR companies are trying to break the mold of just dual rotary controls to something...www.audiosciencereview.com
Well all my speakers are 8 ohm. I was looking at this one but leaning more toward the TX-NR7100 @ $1300. (B&H) but need to find a good review.
IF price were no consideration I would likely go for a Denon. But sadly, money is tight. There are plenty of used AVR's out there, good ones, at low price points but I'm kind of skittish about buying used AVR's (not so much with disc players, my Oppo's were bought used/or reconditioned by Oppo). I may have to forgo that and bite the bullet to get a better unit.
New speakers will NOT be in the budget.
