Hey, I just got a set of Energy Conisseur 5 speakers, Fronts and Center, and I am looking to pair with a solid receiver in the $700/800 range, but I am willing to spend a little more. Right now, I am considering the following:
Thanks Benny, any other receivers you would recommend? The Good Guys is offering deals on Pioneer Elites just about every other week, so I will definitely look into prices. I like NAD's, but I am worried about potential problems. The 763 looks great on paper and I love the NAD sound. I just do not know if they will match well with the Energy's. I know they sound amazing with Paradigm's.
I would take the Pioneer VSX-53tx of the ones listed. The HK has good sound, but the folding front and remote seems kind of weak. Like Berny said...the Denon 3805's sound and remote (flat black touch pad) seems to stike up debate. I would always audition as many as you can, side by side preferably.
IMO the reconditioned units would be at the bottom of my list. Also, a good subject for debate.
The NAD is a great receiver and honestly, I don't know any among the people I personally know who own them having any issues. The issues discussed in this or any other forum is not representative of the whole. If you really like the NAD, I don't see a reason why you shouldn't get it.
