    Ive maxed out my budget from £250 to £400, and upgraded from wanting the CA Azur540r, to either one of the above...

    I know the 1500 is a higher spec with THX, but the 757SE is getting some great press, and is "tweaked" for the UK market, so Im stuck for shoice...

    I can get the 1500 from Germany for £415 (£600 in the UK), or the 757SE for £320 (or £400 in the UK), so am tempted by the 1500 as it seems a real bargain, relatively speaking.... you can see my dilema!!!

    Is there an obvious choice here...

    Thanks...

    I will have no hesitation to choose the RX-V1500. not for a second.
    here is the point. 1500 belongs to a upper league. THX SELECT. 120W RMS power.
    757 weighs only 12.5KGS and 1500 weighs 15.5KGS. there is a bigger difference between them while the price difference is not so huge.

    I would wait if you can as they 1500 shoudl be getting replaced with the 1600 soon so the prices will drop or get the newer 1600 with the improved processing. The 1500/1600 will be a good step above the 757 in power and performance. :D :devil:

    Best idea is to start a new thread in the speaker forums stating your ideas, budget and requirements :smashin:
