Sunfire Ultimate vs. B&K AVR-507


Unregistered guest
O.K., I'm stuck on this one. Bottom line, which is the better receiver for both HT and audio, and why? Assume Energy Veritas speakers, Sunfire SW and Denon DVD.

B&K AVR 507.
I've tried the Sunfire, I'm surprised carver had anything to do with it. At that price point I just expected better. Better bass management, fuller sound, better stereo imaging, great as home theater, though, which I think was the intended market.
To be fair, the compared equipment was an Outlaw Audio 950 with the 7100, using older Boston Acoustics speakers.
The last piece of Carver I purchased was the HR-722 receiver, it still rocks.
However, you may like the Sunfire, give it a shot. Have you listened to it?

I haven't, but have always been a Carver fan. The reviews are great on the unit. The downside to the B&K is primarily the set-up. Many people have commented on that after purchase. Also, the Sunfire has 50 more watts per channel.

At that price point I would try and demo them side by side in your home. You are bound to get a great reciever between the two.

I'm leaning towards online buying so probably won't be able to demo.

Should note, am also considering Denon 5803.
