Lexicon just came out with a new receiver. Lexicon is mainly a high-end manufacturer of seperates, but recently rolled out the RV-8. Check it out at

BTW - the Lexicon is amazing. Expensive, but simply heaven crammed into a metal chassis.

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!! That Lexicon was...there are no words to describe it was, um... "heaven crammed into a metal chassis."

Hey Brad, do you know what the price is? I couldn't find anywhere. Also, do you know what zone 3 is? I assume you can have stereo in 3 rooms instead of 2 but how does that work? Can you listen to 3 seperate things? If soo then this receiver is the king of receivers.

I just wish it had more watts, I saw a different one that was 170 watts rms. Would the 30 watts make adifference? Even if it doesn't it just sounds good when you can say "My stereo is 170 watts rms per channel."

Anyways, thank you for your reply and that link.

During my search, I came across this Primare SP21 unit that looks quite slick but have no chance to demo it locally. http://www.sumikoaudio.net/primare/products/spa21.htm .
Also go to Primare's own site for hi-rez pics under Amplifiers.

It does look slick, but I can't see paying $4,000 for 500 watt amp. that's only 5.1

I know what you mean about the price. I'm actually looking for a good stereo receiver myself. Seems there's none made these days with adequate inputs including an on board phono stage and adequate amplification. I guess I could spring for a multichannel receiver with stereo bypass but that's kinda overkill. Any suggestions?

Did you look at the Yamaha receiver that Jonathan posted above? That thing has a bazillion inputs and outputs and is 170 watts per channel and is 9.1, that is the receiver that I wan't.

Although I'm not sure I see a phono input on the Yamaha, soo I won't be able to use my Turn table, but hey, this receiver is worth it.

Don't be dazzled my the number of inputs that ANY receiver has. It still needs to sound good! For the price that Yammy wants for the Z-9, there are other - better sounding - products out there. I'm not anti-Yamaha, I've owned a lot of their products (and still do) over the years.

Check out the sound for that price. Even in Audio, there is such a thing as overkill. Happy hunting!
