Hey guys! Recently pulled the trigger and completed my surround sound, for now. I'm running RF-82ii's in the front and RB-61ii's for the rear. Center is RC-62ii with a hopefully soon to be upgraded SW-450 for sub. So far so good, with one exception. I recently purchased an Emotiva UMP-200 and failed to realize my receiver (Denon AVR-790) doesn't have pre-outs. I know I should have looked first, but I could have sworn it did. Anyway, I'm looking to upgrade the receiver now to something that will support the amp. Does anyone have any good recommendations? I would like to keep it ~$500 since I just dropped a bit of coin on everything else.

Thanks in advance,

Charles

Welcome to the forum!

I like h/k receivers, but don't recommend them if you intend to use the room EQ correction.

That's a great setup.

I have been very satisfied with my HK AVR3600. Latest one's on Ebay are selling as low as $300. Here is a New in Box that ends in 4 days. Link

I have no problems with the HK's room correction. It does a much better job than my previous UMC-1 which was horrible at room correction.

Thanks for the input. I'm looking at picking up the Onyko TX-NR717..

Thoughts?

I looked hard at that unit and the 818 last year when I was in the market. In my reading it seemed to have more that its fair share of HDMI issues so I steered clear. Very happy with my Pioneer units.

I would get an OPPO BDP-103.

Welcome to the forum. Have you heard any particular brand and was impressed. This will help us make suggestions. Do you stream music or need any other features?

Welcome to the forum. What are the specs on the Emotiva UMP-200? I'm not able to find that one in Google. Is it a multichannel amp you would use with a preamp like the Emotiva UMC-200 (which by the way is on sale for $599)?

Welcome to the forums, you have a nice system.

I assume he means the UPA-200.

I had few different receivers (no top of the line stuff, all mid liners) and IMHO Pioneer makes very best $3-500 receivers. some say Pioneers are "too bright" for the Klipsch, but I think they sound just perfect together.

I was going to suggest you just get a dedicated pre/pro unless finances are really tight which might push you back into receiver territory. The emo processor is an option and outlaw audio has one as well similarly priced. I just havent done a close side by side comparison to tell your pros/cons.

First off, I didn't expect to have so much input, you guys are great!! I was supposed to have the RF-82's this weekend but have gotten pushed out until tomorrow, hopefully. I did mean UPA-200, got my letters a little twisted. For now I have the amp in the box and think I will just use the Denon I have now to drive everything. Once it's all installed and had a chance to be broken in I'll most likely look for a dedicated pre/pro. Anyway, this thread is worthless without pictures right?? :)
