I wold love to say yes, the Meridian is AN AMAZING pre/pro, but the new uncompressed audio codecs have the potential to sound better from lessor gear than DD/DTS from the best.
I'll let you know what I find out!
Kenny I'm really looking forward to your thoughts of the Denon AVP, not only on its own but how is stacks up against the Meridian 861 you had. I know I have been enjoying the heck out of my Denon AVP, and each time I use it it brings a smile to my face.
