Another "best" question. Too many variables are omitted. Options range from the Integra DHC-80.3 to the DataSat RS-20i.

Agreed Kr4. There is no best of anything. Just like there is no best price. If one looks hard enough, you'll always find something better after you think you found the best.
There are good VALUES that meets your needs though.
Right now, one of the best values around is the Marantz AV7005 being cleared out at around $1200. Learn about it and if it meets your needs and budget, it may be the "best" processor for you.
what i was looking for for a processor that will go with my adcom GFA 7000 amplifier, i was thinking in terms of a moderately priced processor, like the range of $2,000 to $3,000, my wish list is Theta processor, but out of my budget right now........ just made a bid on a Rotel rsp 1570, would that be a good choice.
Thanks for all your responses.
Almost any processor will mate well with the amp. The (old) 1570 lacks an EQ function but, if it sounds like the 1572 that I reviewed, it is a nice prepro. From the current crop, I would suggest you look at the Marantz 8801 which I have seen, at discount, under $3K or the Integra 80.3 which is even less.
