    In my quest for a medium-term investment in a move to AV/Music upgrade
    one question is still around...

    My favourite receivers are Denon, Marantz and I could think about a NAD, with a same brand DVD (maybe universal) player.

    Should I invest on something like a 500€ (SR4500/5500, AVR 1905/2105)Receiver and later add a stereo amp like a Rotel/NAD/Marantz or go to a 1000€ AV Receiver like a SR7500/AVR2805?

    How can get the best musically?
    I'm leaning towards the 1st option.

    My priorities are the best musical performance in both Music/HC.

    Thanx in advice for any opinions/experiences :)

    Hi
    If music is important have a listen to nad,used to own a nad t752 receiver and found it very musical and good with movies.I now have a harman kardon avr8500 which is one of the best sounding intergrated receivers with music that ive heard,you can pick them up for around £900 exdemo if you look around.
    Cheers Gonzo. :)

    Hi, i had the same problem a months ago and no av until 3500EUR, can be as musical as a stereo amp. So my option was to buy as decent av and a integrated amp with bypass.

    This is still correct, however the Arcam AVR300 has a very rich sound in stereo and SACD/DVDA and approaches high end stereo kit very close...
    It's not as feature rich as the Japs are but I prefer the sound compared to, say, the Denon AVR-3805.
