I am looking for a new pre-amp / processor for Home Theater. I have been looking at the Anthem D2V, AVM50V, and Classe SSP. I have also heard good things about the ADA Mach IV. I like the ARC room correction and have heard it is better than the one included in the Denon top pre/pro which is also on the list.
I am looking for something that retails for under $8,000 and either is HDMI 1.4 or will have a simple, easy, and fairly cheap upgrade path.
