Re: Denon PMA-1500AE

The B&W603s got a great "Phile" recommendation, but are about $350 more than the Primus 360, which got a good recommendation. I have always liked B and W, and if money is an issue you could by the monitor style B and W 602s and add a sub later. I think they are at the Primus 360 price point. I like simple crossovers for better spatial cues. I would try and hear each of them if you could. The new Denon amp looks pretty nice. I am also curious about the Marantz 7200 integrated that operates in class A for the first 25 watts. I think it sells for $550. Good Luck.

That DCSA1 CD/2 ch SACD player looks nice as well. At least Denon is moving up and not trying to make another swell $49 DVD player. The PMA SA1 and the 2000AE and 1500AE look very nice. Can't wait until they hit here in the US. They are not on the Denon USA website yet.
