    Good H/U for pure SQ setup

    I'm thinking about using a Nakamichi 40z for my head in my new pure sq setup. The systems stands so far being two US Acoustics USX2100's, and an Adire Audio Shiva. Anyone have any sudgestions for a better head for around that price? Any help would be appreciated.

    Clarion 825 or 725 would be good. 3 sets of 4V preouts with non fade sub output. 3 band eq with selectable center Frequency and "Q" adjustment. Excellent 9dbf sens on tuner and 100 db s/n on cd section.
    825's are 200 or so on ebay. 725 even cheaper...

    either alpine, or premier.....Premier pre outs can stay unclipped at very high volumes.....very clean....BUT you can't use those stupid EQ settings on the deck......

    I can't find anywhere online that sells them besides www.redmountainaudio.com and they don't publish prices. I'd love to drool at a Denon but again, I can't find them. Anywho, the Clarion seems to be the one I'm going with for now because of the satelite feature. Thanks for all of your input.
