Hi there, I am confused a few years ago I got into relatively hi-end home cinema gear when me and a close friend bought a lot of Tag kit, with a processor and separate amps for each channel etc. Unfortunately I don't have any of this now, and I am looking to build soon a relatively low budget system. I haven't followed the av receiver market since, so I'd like to ask what is the lowest level of receiver or the lowest price point where I can have a discreet amp for each channel, in an av receiver. I am looking for 7-channel. Also, in which products can I find toroidal transformers? I am not necessarily looking for both (discreet amps and toroidal transformers) but it would be nice to have both in the box. I am not brand-fanatic, so any suggestions welcome. Again I am looking for the starting point in price. I've read that e.g the Denon A1XV has got discreet amps all round, whereas some receivers have got 2 integrated amps driving 5 channels etc. My complete system will probably have 5 x 8 Ohm speakers and 2 x 4 Ohm, so I believe the discreet amps will also help the configuration there. Any recommendations welcome. Many thanx!
