I am thinking to get the new Sunfire TGP5. Any input or suggestions?

I am also thinking of purchasing a TGP5. I have also been looking at a Rotel RSP1098 too. These are the two most bang for the buck units I have found.

I cannot say enough good about Sunfire equipment. I have a TG-IV and an original Ultimate Receiver; they are awesome. I also have a 300x2 amp and Classic Tube 2 channel preamp. The S/N on the classic is phenomenal.

Now if I could just find four 600x2 amps or perhaps a TG7400 on the cheap, I'd be in business!

Incidentally, this should probably be posted in the Sunfire forum...

From FrankieD's lips to your ears: Sunfire - a quiet box of endless power.

Go with the TGIV. There have been some customer service issues since Bob left the company. Beyond that, I would spend less on the IV and maybe pick up an amp too......Can't go wrong with that.
You can't fix stupid.

I don't think Flash Gordon is with us anymore. If I remember right he was on a bad note with Sunfire, Like Bill said he was having customer service issues after he did get a TFP 5.

The TG-4's seem to cost about the same as the TG-5's. I always wondered why. I get the impression that the 5's were lacking somewhere. A sunfire processor is my next purchase and I'm leaning towards the 4. They certainly are holding their value. I seen very little under 2500. Being from Canada I'm going to have to add another 20% to that. That really makes it expensive.Art
