Re: High end pre/pro's. Are they worth it???
I have been using the top shelf Denon receivers for years as a Pre/Pro. Just got their latest one so I could have HDMI 1.3a along with their BD3800 BluRay player as my first step into that medium. Companies like Denon and Onkyo have come a long ways in the last 10 years. The difference between them and the Meridians, Halcros, Krells, ARs and CJs have gotten way smaller. I don't why more companies don't build "Blade" style boxes so they can be upgraded, connectors and all to meet the latest tech....darn it...how could I forget $$$$$$$$$$$!
