In a previous thread I was attemting to discover the upgrade potential of the Denon AVC A1SE.. having demoed it alongside the A10SE. But audiophile quality questions and reservations over sound format upgrading abounded and the thought of potentially having to ditch my much loved Arcam Alpha 10 has put me off temporarily parting with my cash Another member of this forum suggested through another thread that the TAG McLaren AV32R offers both hard and software upgrades and falls well within the price range of the Denon. (after 24hrs research sounds quite promising)... Has anyone any thoughts.. positive/negative points on this processor? Also at present finances do not allow for the purchase of the matching Tag 5 Channel Pwr Amp, so I am considering the Rotel RB985 mk2 in its place. I dont know very much about this amp and would welcome any thoughts on its performance and its potential to match the Tag. Thanks folks. ------------------ If you're gonna shoot... shoot! don't talk.
