ISO new reciever, advice needed.
Hello all. I am look to replace my old late 70's Pioneer SX-1900 with a new reciever and I am looking for some advice or sugguestions on which brand/model is recommended. The reciever would be for music only, so I do not need a home theather reciever. My speakers are Paradigms bookshelf monitor 5 series, and I run w/ them an old but rebuilt Velodyne subwoofer. I mostly listen to XM radio via my Polk Audio XM home reciever and MP3s through iTunes from my computer. I also listen to some albums, so if possible I would like a reciever that has phono. My CD player is a harman/kardon CDR-2 that I really like.
I was thinking of purchasing the harman/kardon HK3485, but I have heard mix reviews. I feel my price range is up to about $750, and I am hopeful that would mean I could buy something deciet. Again its for music only, so I do not need any home theather features. Any advice is most helpful!
