    I have heard the Lexicon and it sounded amazing. It was hooked up to a 5ch Adcom amp and B&W all around. Never heard Integra but I'm willing to bet the Lexicon sounds better.

    i think i read somewhere on this site that integra was the elite of Onkyo.
    probably if excellent..lexicon always has high praise but now for an even less expensive price i have seen the new Yamaha top o' the line stuff--also very impressive-i have been a 2 channel freak for 28 years--but thx and stuff i am very green at..this could be a hard decision for me..gosh they're all so nice.i like what Mantis said about what sounds best through my speakers-good idea -i could take then in there and try that..
