With the M80s if it were me I would opt for the NAD.

the shortest wait is for the m80s but the longest wait is the surrouds about 9 weeks....
i also read my YAMAHA RX-Z1 manual carefully for the first time.....and it has capasity for additional two front speakers called front effect speakers in addition to the two mains.....does that mean i can add two additional surrounds in the front ?? or if i go with the NAD, is 5.1 or 7.1 or 7.2 setup ? what additional benefits do i get with the NAD ?
the countdown has begun!!!!!! if anybody in north bay area has this system i would like to audition them and touch and feel them !!!!!!!! thanks

I use a Denon 885/2105 that sounds great. Denon, HK, NAD, Outlaw.. there’s allot of great stuff available. As was suggested to me at these forums: look at the features you want and find them at your price point. As other posts have mentioned cost does always equal sound quality. And there are many opinions about what good and bad. Some legit others not. Remember trust your ears and what sounds good to you. You cannot go wrong with speakers from Axiom you are going to love them.
Enjoy!

They usually ship closer to the sooner side of things than the later if you do a big order like that. No guarantee that will happen with you, but this is generally the experience of people on the boards. When my wife ordered a custom shop VP100, she was quoted 6 weeks, and we got it in a week and a half.

thats good to know....coming back to the NADs are they planning to come up with newer models or is the 773 the latest and best they have ??
what additional benefits with 7.1 setup....my understanding is most the movies released on dvd don't yet have the 7.1 decoding ????????

Big fun of Rotel here, but I liked the looks of the New NAD

Rotel is in a different league from mass consumer brands (yamah, denon, HK etc.) As such, it is more expensive but provides the best bang for the buck. Check them out:
