Thank you

It's good reading this thread.... now I can stop shopping for an AV processor.

I've been thinking about this for years and couldn't get comfortable with how to do HT in conjunction with an all tube 2 channel. Anyway, I like the two channel AV. The center channel images very nicely. I also use subs which help a lot.

My only complaint is clocking too many hours on my good output tubes. So, I'm going to get an el84 amp to use for AV duties. I can use Russian equivalent output tubes at just a few bucks a piece. The mono amps sit next to the speakers so switching the speaker cables is an easy task. el84's have a punchy and a wonderfully forward mid-range that emphasizes the voice spectrum. Which fixes the problem with having to turn up the volume to hear the dialogue which makes everything else too loud. I think it's the perfect AV tube amp.
