You were playing in the somewhat higher end arena. The Adcom GSA 700 has gotten spooked now. I'd want to part with it. Had you perhaps bought it as a refurb? It has proven to be a problem. Googling will easily find you a vendor who handles Adcom refurbs.
The thing about receivers is that now is a moving target due to HDMi connectivity transitioning to version 1.3. !.3 is tempting to want for it's apparent future capabilities for both better sound but more importantly for deep color capabilities.
Anyhow, 1.3 equipped components are just starting to be released. Buying closeouts/refurbs entails buying into prior generation as to HDMI.
I happen to like my Denon stuff quite well. Their up to date as of a few months ago model AVR 2807 was called sweet spot of the line by c/net. Street price for it is around a grand. C/net rated at 8.7. At 9.0 & at 2 grand is the highly capable Denon AVR4306. That gets into the 2 grand range for a replacement Adcom - where you didn't want to be.
Consider the Denon AVR 2807 as a starting point. Read the c/net review.
I have a Adcom GSA 700 that needs repaired for the third time. I want to replace it.
I have Acurus preamp, Acurus Amp (2channel) for Definitive technology mains.
The system was originally for music. I added the Adcom surround processor for home theater. It has built in amps for the rear and center. Adcom suggests I trade it in for their new reciever ($2,000).I don't have that kind of money anymore, I got married.
What can I replace this with to get my home theater back up and running that wont leave me broke? Should I be looking at recievers so I can power my rears and center or find another processor with built in amps thats more up to date?
I wolud like to buy used/refurbished, anything to save me money while still keeping as clean as possable.
Any links or suggestions on how to find a solution would be much appreciated. (models/numbers)
