Looking for expert advice on subject. Criteria is as follows: 7.1 audio analog inputs (for SACD among other purposes); 7.1 balanced speaker outputs; processing of all lossless formats including DTS-MA, True DD, etc.; network capability; and 5 or 6 HDMI inputs. Price point would be something between $2000 to $5000. Thanking you in advance.
Plenty fill your requirements except that I do not know what you mean by "balanced speaker outputs." Can we assume you mean balanced preamp output? Onkyo PR-SC5508, 5509 Integra DHC-80.2, 80.3 Marantz AV7005 Anthem AVM-50v
