Not sure if this is the right category for this question but:
I'm looking for ideas for separates for a surround setup. I'm thinking about the Krell Foundation and a Krell Chorus 5200 amp right now. But they're spendy. I had an Arcam preamp and amp. Great sound but they were overloaded with things I never used and they were finicky. I'm looking for a streamlined, no-frills setup with audiophile sound. Any thoughts? Thanks.
