I was thinking about picking up the Denon AVR-3803 (actually originally the 3802 but some members here convinced me that the 3803 was a much better receiver), but at the suggestion of a friend I took a look at the Onkyo TX-SR800. Being a relative newbie to HT - I'm building my first HT right now - I figured I might as well take any advice I can get from those that are more experienced. Anyway, the more I read about it the more I'm starting to like the Onkyo. And for about the same price, the Onkyo looks to be somewhat better, it has the THX certification (although that's not super critical to me, but it is nice I guess). Anyway, now I'm leaning towards the Onkyo, and I was wondering if there are certain aspects of the Denon I'm overlooking, or if Onkyo is a lesser company than Denon, or any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
