Now, no one is comparing them to the likes of Meridian, Mark Levinson, Mcintosh etc. But hey, give them there props. What are the big boys doing, or as I mentioned earlier, what are the Esoteric companies doing right now? If you want the latest in connectivity and flexibility with HDMI, 1.3, Dolby Master, DTS, inputs and outputs, you must go receiver. While you wait for the Esoteric companies to catch up.

That should not be given the level of performance and pricing that they are at. That should be a demand, that at that level of equipment, no holds barred attack, everything should be there.

My two cents.
It appears NAD is releasing Receivers that you'll just have to get upgraded with the Cirrus Chips when they can get them!!! So they're making Modular Receivers which is actually pretty dang cool and makes purchasing them a lot easier knowing you can upgrade it in the future.

The big thing is the lack of Cirrus Chips.
