To be honest, I think it's the upgraditis and being surounded by too many SNA members hahaha. If I really take the time to think about it then given my current setup I don't really need to upgrade. The Denon AVR-3311 is the piece of equipment that I haven't ever thought about upgrading so maybe I feel it's being left behind while my other components are always changing..
At the risk of sounding ignorant, could you please tell me a bit more about Integra? I've predominantly always looked at Denon, Marantz and Yamaha. Am I right in the understanding that Integra is Onkyo's higher end electronics line and it's a case of similar specs but the use of higher quality components and longer warranty? Where would I be able look at the Integra refurb range?
@:) al Appreciate your detailed reply Al, absolutely right about things not coming up for sale when you are looking! And yes I do sometimes forget this is a HIFI forum
Interesting note on this. In the Parasound P5 Manual it says that when the P5 is turned off, the HT Bypass should automatically work however this does not work for me. When I have the P5 turned off, sound only comes out of my rear speakers. It is only when I have my P5 turned on and in the Bypass input that the system works as it should. Might be a topic for another post.
