    I'm thinkig of going for the first time in the AV surrond sound.

    Musical performance, specialy stereo is still my favourite thing!

    In case of using pre-outs to power a stereo power amp to upgrade stereo music performance, wich brands perform better in preamp/processor duties?

    I'm thinking around Marantz SR5400 or he future 5500, or the new Denon 2105...

    Harman/Kardon also make H/C amps that are good in stereo. If you can stretch to it look at the 7400 or when it comes out the 7500 as it is better in stereo and has more power. Maybe even look at the new Yamaha's as they are meant to be quite good in stereo now. I have a 1400 with a Rotel power (being upgraded to a more powerful Rotel:D) amp bi-amping the front speakers and it does improve it. I still rate the stereo ability of the 1400 on its own :smashin:
