through pioneer elite 54 in the mix too you will enjoy this set up takes about one month to break in the center IMHO you could have done better by LCR600 as even with the bigger one i felt dialogues fell flat good for music out of the list do not go for Onkyo Hk and pioneer if you like music if only movies then denon or yammy is way to go.
I looked into SR5500 and SR7500. I am leaning towards SR7500. I am from India and the price is ok with me (20% more than the $ price - thats ok). but the main problem is, I can't get a demo with Marantz and B&W.
My main usage is HT (movies).
Anyway, I like to know if there are any other delears in Bangalore, India for Matantz (and B&W). Contact details will be helpful.
I have been running B&W 640's,800,and CD6s with Harmon Kardon gear from day one. I love the way B&W speakers sound powered by Harmon Kardon Amps. My current Harmon Kardon power amp is the Awesome AVR-7300. See my review down the page. I also checked out the Dennon 5803 and 5805 but found them to have a more flat dry sound. I thought they were over priced for what they were. Both Dennon were powerful amps but I didnt care for how they sound and they didnt have the audio or video flexability as the HK.
