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...

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.

TG-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
