Onkyo PR-SC5508 9.1 SSP and PA-MC5509 Nine-Channel Power Amplifier

Onkyo PR-SC5508

 

First, this is my separate pre-amplifier. My next caveat is that I'm a decades-long Onkyo / Integra user; which isn't an installment in a Ford/Chevy debate. Those caveats out of the way, this unit performs flawlessly with many layers of tweaks to...
