I have just bought a KEF egg surround speaker package from a friend (KHT2005). Until now I have only had 2 speakers connected to my Reciever (a NAD T750) but was now hoping to reap the benefits of surround sound. One problem though. I watch TV and DVD through my Panasonic DVD recorder (DMR-E85) which only outputs dolby 5.1 from it's digital optical out connector and my reciever doesn't have an optical input. Therefore it's looking like I need to do one of two things. 1. Buy a new reciever (I have been looking at the Pioneer VSX-515). 2. Or By a decoder box with a digital optical input and suitable analogue outputs for reciever. I don't really want another box in my living room so I think I will have to replace my reciever. But can't find any reviews for the Pioneer VSX-515. I originally chose the Nad for it's ability to handle both movie and CD audio with equal competance and would like it's replacement to do the same. Have things moved on enought in the last 6 years since I bought the Nad that I will be happy no matter what or is there a better option out there? An advice would be apprieciated. Thanks John PS. I might even consider the VSX-915 and I could do with the component switching to my Projector.
