2014-02-22 2:32 pm
Im looking for a good amp for my active setup, probably used one, since my budget is 500E max ( im located in EU ).

Currently I am using Panasonic SA-XR700 and 3-way diy loudspeakers ( DAYTON RS270S-8 10", DAYTON AUDIO RS52AN-8 2", SB29RDC-C000-4 )

I was looking in other topics on forum and found Adcom 7607/Outlaw 7125 but found only 1 on ebay Adcom GFA 7607 811900010217 | eBay, and getting it from USA is too epensevie - 96E shipping + 186 Import charges.

Im open to any suggestions. I need good amp with great quality/value ratio. Is it 6CH/home theater/3x2CH/DIY or A, B, A/B, D class doesn really matter to me.

What i found so far:

Arcam avr 360 +/- 600E, Arcam AVR360 | eBay
NAD T747 +/- 650E, NAD T747 A V Receiver Brand NEW Boxed Never Opened | eBay
Cambridge Audio Azur 540R +/- 250E, Cambridge Audio Azur 540R Surround Sound Receiver High END British Audiophile | eBay

And most interesting because of price :
Onkyo Tx-sr 875 200-300E Onkyo Tx Sr 875 Top Model For Sale in Finglas, Dublin from michalwojdynski
This one has hdmi board broken ( looks like its a common problem )
Dont think i would be using hdmi or surround decoders on active setup, and for around 300E i can get a fully working one. Is it worth getting fully working one just for the Burr Brown DACs?
I didnt find any test or measurements of this amp over the net, i only know that it has 90db+ S/N ratio.
What you think about this reciever? Is it well built? Worth its price? How good/bad is it compared to others listed? Other recommendations? :)
