    I have been reading the posts on this web site for a while now, and also taking in the replys you all have generously provided me when I have posted questions. After much consideration and deliberation between purchasing a Sherwood Newcastle R-965 and the Arcam AVR-300, I finally took the plunge and ordered the AVR-300.

    My main goal in purchasing this new piece of equipment was better sonic performance in Home Theater and 2 Channel Stereo (I'll also admit that the dreaded upgrade bug bit me good). My current Harman Kardon AVR-65 has been a great mid-level piece over the past 6 years... it sounds great with movies, but when playing 2 channel music I felt it was missing something. Maybe part of it is due to using Atlantic Technology 350THX speakers - but I feel the speakers are more than capable of doing a great job in both arenas. I should receive my AVR-300 sometime late next week and I am positive I'll be hooking it up and playing with it all next weekend. I can't explain how excited I am to receive this unit and get it dialed in. For now the only other upgrade I'm interested in is locating two side AT 354's to go to a 7.1 system... but this all depends on how they sound with the Arcam unit (I've been biting at the chomps to switch to Monitor Audio Silvers).

    Anyway, Cheers to you all for your help and guidance. I'm positive I'll thoroughly enjoy my new purchase.

    Jerry :D
