    I just purchased the B&W 804 diamonds and am really pleased with them.

    In the future I will upgrade my set with the 805 diamond and the HTM4 diamond. But for now I want to upgrade my receiver (currently H/K AVR745) because I think the receiver is no match for the speakers especially when playing stereo.

    So that's why I'm seeking advice here, has anyone advice on a good speaker/receiver (or preamp/amp) combination?

    Brands I'm currently considering are Rotel, NAD and Arcam.

    Thanks,
    Herman

    Another brand to add to your list is Anthem, awesome electronics and do AV receivers from £1100 and Processors from £6250.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Currently considering the Arcam AVR600 and the Rotel RSX-1560.
    Anyone had a chance to compare them together with B&W's?

    Is the Arcam worth the extra money?
