I have the Emotiva XMC-1 and it is a terrific preprocessor with the focus more on audio quality rather than bells and whistles. And it comes with Dirac Room Correction built-in, a BIG plus. It's half of your stated budget, has a 5 year warranty and comes with a 30 day in-home trial. Order one and try it out, I bet you keep it!
