I am wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a great company that sells via internet.

I want to purchase a new 7.1 processor/preamp combo....I am sure someone has a great experience or knows of a great value.

thanks to everyone who can give me a thought or two.

Well it certainly looks as if you have your amp section sorted out eh? I've never owned one of their processors myself, but I do own an Emotiva amp and can vouch for the fact that they pack a lot in for the price, so you might check them out.

Other than them I've never really looked into pre/pro's, so that's the only direction I can point you in. Good luck!

I would consider Outlaw Audio possibly.

I'd almost be inclined to look seriously at some of the AVRs with all of the pre-outs you need, overall it seems like they do a better job at processing and have quite a few more bells and whistles at a much more reasonable cost than most separate processors on the market today.

That's some nice Rotel gear you have. That 1095 is a beast at what, almost 90lbs?

the 1095 amp has always been my favorite purchase until the axiom speakers. I do have to say the 1092s have really impressed me, I was very sceptical however the speakers and amps match perfect!

I have looked at the outlaw, EMotiva, and really like the Integra. Hoping to find someting budget friendly, and just trying to "live in the now" as the kids at work tell me I need to with the HD audio thats out there now.

What are the AVRs?

Yeah, even though receivers have internal amps, for some reason they are still usually cheaper than most amp-less pre/pros, and have a better feature set. So if you just ignore they amps, and make sure you get a model with pre-outs, you can have all the advanced features, and still make use of your nice amps.

That said, I really like the Onkyo Pro PR-SC5507P, but it's 9.2. There's a 7.2 model showing up now, the TX-NR807P. If I were buying a pre/pro at this moment, it would be one of those.

thanks, that is another great idea. I did not think I could get a home theater that had that many preouts. Had a quick look at the onkyo, that would be more a killer product.

I know at least some of the Harman Kardon AVRs have 7.1 pre-outs, like this AVR3600 for example ... Harman Kardon AVR3600
