What does your Onkyo not do?

I would consider buying a good sub before upgrading.

I would also consider buying a great STEREO reciever for $500-$1000.

I am assuming money matters.

A good preamp/power amp combo starts around $3000.

My 5 channel amp retails for $4500 and is considered one of the best VALUES on the market.

It adds up fast and you WILL get deminshing returns.
