@4425 I just purchased the 5200 today - haven't hooked it up yet, but I did a very long demo at an a/v spot near me. They used similar Martin Logan ESL's to mine (a level down), and I was absolutely floored. Granted, I don't have a large frame of reference - I have been using my Marantz 7011 AVR as my source of amplification. I was literally blown away by the sound - we started w/ a Parasound and then I listened to the chorus, as they had a floor model for sale. It was a tough decision between the two (keep in mind, I'm new), but I went w/ the Krell for the value as I was getting a steal. Can't wait to get this fully connected!
